AIO is the first eye surgical practice in Western Pennsylvania offering Laser Cataract Surgery. The Alcon® LenSx® Laser is the newest FDA-approved technology for treating cataracts.
In the early days of cataract surgery, patients endured a long and somewhat painful recovery time with unpredictable results.
Over the years, surgery evolved to an advanced no-patch, no-injection, no-stitch, 15 to 30 minute procedure with a rapid recovery time and good visual outcomes.
Lifestyle Lens implants further advanced cataract surgery, allowing patients to see near, far and in-between without glasses. But a misconception grew among cataract sufferers. Many patients thought cataract surgery was performed with a laser, which simply was not true, until now.
Associates in Ophthalmology is proud to be one of the first practices anywhere to offer FDA-approved laser cataract surgery. This revolution in technology allows our surgeons to make cataract surgery more precise and more predictable than ever before.
With the FDA-approved LenSx laser, our surgeons now perform blade-free laser cataract surgery. This is the same laser technology we have been using for more than a decade in Bladeless LASIK surgery to achieve excellent outcomes.
The femtosecond technology of the LenSx will allow surgeons to make an opening into the lens, create corneal incisions, correct astigmatism and perform lens fragmentation by using a laser instead of a blade, all before entering the eye to remove the cataract.
Ask your eye doctor if cataract surgery with the LenSx Laser is right for you.
