North Shore Eye Care Revolutionizing Cataract Surgery With Introduction of First Catalys Laser on Long Island
Date:12/26/2013

op 10% surgeons in the world to offer patients the safety, precision and accuracy of the Catalys Laser System. North Shore Eye Care is the first practice in Suffolk County and the second practice on Long Island to give patients access to this advanced laser technology.

The Catalys makes laser correction of astigmatism now possible with more precise and predictable laser-guided application. In the post-operative recovery period following laser cataract surgery, there is less incidence of swelling and inflammation than with traditional cataract surgery.

“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. The only method to treat a cataract is through surgical removal of the body’s natural lens and implanting an artificial lens.

According to Dr. Martin, cataract surgery has evolved over the years from a procedure with less than certain outcomes, to an advanced no-patch, no-shot, no-stitch, 10-minute procedure with a swift
