Turner Eye Institute Now Using New LenSx Laser for Cataracts

San Leandro, CA (PRWEB) July 09, 2013

Cataracts affect 70 percent of people over the age of 75. Turner Eye Institute is highlighting a new technology called the LenSx Laser to make the process of removing cataracts even easier. The LenSx laser has revolutionized cataract surgery by operating with unmatched precision and computer control, helping surgeons to customize the procedure to the patient’s eye. It is a technologically advanced option for cataract patients that allow them to enjoy a range of vital benefits.

A cataract is a clouding of the natural lens inside of the eye. This lens, located behind the iris, works just like the lens of a camera; focusing light images on the retina, which sends images to the brain. The human lens can become so clouded, it keeps light and images from reaching the retina.

Vision with cataracts has been described as seeing life through old, cloudy film. But a cataract is not a “film” over the eyes or a growth inside the eye. It cannot be prevented, even diet and exercise will not prevent it or make it go away. Eye injuries, certain diseases or even some medications can accelerate the clouding, but a cataract is also an aging change of the lens.

The best way to treat a cataract is with surgery that removes the old clouded lens and replaces it with a new, artificial one to restore vision, and many ways significantly improve one’s quality of life. Today’s technology has made both surgeries and the replacement lenses safer and more effective than ever. For instance, the refractive cataract laser has significantly increased surgical precision.

Due to the huge medical advances made, cataract surgery is one of the most successful procedures performed today. Cataract surgery is generally a simple outpatient procedure with little or no discomfort, performed in only a few minutes and done under topical anesthetic.

The LenSx laser has revolutionized cataract surgery. While human eyes share the same basic anatomical structure, every eye is just a bit different in terms of size, depth, curvature of the cornea, and other key features. This is why every eye must be carefully measured and mapped prior to cataract surgery. While these measurements have been routinely performed prior to surgery, the LenSx uses a range of widely advanced technologies including integrated optical coherent tomography (OCT), to capture an incredibly precise, high-resolution image of the eye. These images, and the measurements and data they provide, are then used to plan and perform surgery to exact specifications not attainable with traditional surgery. In addition to aiding in cataract removal, the LenSx laser is also able to correct corneal astigmatism in one procedure allowing for an excellent visual result.

In summary, LenSx technology provides safety, accuracy and the unparalleled results immediately after surgery.
