Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery Orange County
The leading cause of vision loss in the United States is caused by cataracts. Because of this, cataract surgery has become one of the most common surgeries performed in the US.
CATALYS Precision Laser System
Atlantis Eyecare is proud to house one of the most advance laser systems in cataract surgery known as the CATALYS Precision Laser System, the new standard in cataract surgery.
The CATALYS Precision laser machines uses a combination of a femtosecond laser and an advanced 3D Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), which is a form of imaging, that eliminates the use of manual techniques and hand held instruments previously used by doctors. This allows for surgeons to perform all incision in a more precise size, form and position. Making it possible to remove all cataracts more easily and with a good amount of tissue preservation.
The laser technology generates energy that separates the tissue. This is done by the production of tiny air bubbles in-between the tissue cells. Its laser performs micrometer precision cuts as if it were operating with an invisible blade.
Because every eye has a unique shape and size, CATALYS’ advance OCT imaging reveals and lays out a real-time map of your eye that is completely tailed to your treatment. This makes it possible for Atlantis Eyecare to give you some of the most personalized and custom treatment for cataract surgery in Orange County.
Benefits of CATALYS Precision Laser System:
- The CATALYS eliminates the need for hand held blade incisions by our surgeons, thus removing human error.
- A highly customized procedure using advanced 3D imaging.
- The CATALYS Laser is 10x more accurate than manual incisions.
- Because the laser creates such a precise and unique incision, it allows for a better seal. It is a gentler on the eye and preserves a greater mount of tissue making it much safer.
- It has a faster recovery when compared to a manual procedure.
When pursuing treatment for a cataract, there are a few options to choose from. As time progresses, so too does the technology and techniques used to treat cataracts. With a breakthrough procedure known as a Laser assisted cataract surgery, technology has brought new levels of safety, accuracy and predictability in the process of removing and replacing a lens.
Laser assisted cataract surgery provides the same outcome as traditional cataract surgery but uses quite a different approach, utilizing a femtosecond laser to break up cataracts. Our surgeons will use special software to create a surgical plan with a 3-D image of the eye. This plan will include a location, depth, and length of the cataract in all planes. With this unique map of your eye and the settings created by its unique software, the femtosecond laser will create the incisions and assist in the cataract removal.
The Laser assisted cataract procedure uses light energy which causes a disruption of the eye’s tissue borders. There is minimal damage to other nearby tissue. Your old lens will be removed, and replaced with a new one. Recovery time is very similar to traditional cataract surgery, and most patients experience clearer vision and can resume normal activities fairly rapidly.
