“The national outcomes have been excellent with patients achieving early visual recovery,” reports Dr Martin. “The laser procedure is surgeon-directed, computer controlled and allows for added precision during surgery. This means our patients can return to their normal activities sooner.”

Each human eye varies according to size, depth, curvature of the cornea and other essential factors. In preparation for cataract surgery, every eye is carefully measured and mapped. The Catalys laser uses a combination of highly advanced technologies to capture extremely precise, high-resolution digital images of the eye. “These real-time images, plus the measurements and data they provide, are then used to plan and perform a surgery to customized specifications that were previously unachievable,” notes Dr. Martin.

Cataract development is simply part of the natural aging process and is quite common in everyone over age 50. Cataracts occur when the natural clear lens of the eye becomes progressively cloudy, causing colors to become less vibrant normal vision to become blurred.
