What is Laser Cataract Surgery?
At Clewner & Kelly Eye Center, we are proud to provide the most specialized diagnosis technology and treatment methods for cataracts, including laser cataract surgery. Classified as a clouding of the natural lens of the eye, cataracts generally start to develop after the age of 40. Due to the fact that cataracts are foggy spots within the lens itself, the lens has to be extracted and substituted with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL) to treat the disease. Laser cataract surgery employs advanced technology that can digitally diagram the surface of the eye and apply a more perfect, bladeless incision, greatly minimizing the risk of complications. For cataract surgery patients with refractive errors, like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and presbyopia, personalized IOLs are available that can work just like corrective lenses. Schedule an evaluation with a board-certified ophthalmologist at our Boca Raton, FL office to discover if you could be a candidate for laser cataract surgery.

How is Laser Cataract Surgery Performed?
About an hour before laser cataract surgery, someone on our team fully numbs the patient’s eyes with specialized eye drops. Laser cataract surgery is much like traditional cataract surgery except we implement advanced laser technology to establish the most advantageous incision site, make the incision, and break apart the cataract. This amazing technology diagrams an extremely sophisticated map of the eye. Consequently, the lasers can establish the exact position of the cataract. Once the cataract is broken apart and removed, the surgeon can replace it with the appropriate intraocular lens. Because of its unmatched precision, laser cataract surgery technology creates exceptional outcomes with a shorter healing process than traditional surgery. Laser cataract surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure and typically takes 15 – 30 minutes to complete.
