This month, Vision Care Specialists became one of the first vision care centers in Denver to offer laser cataract surgery technology. It’s our goal to provide our patients (and soon to be patients) the most advanced and effective vision enhancement solutions available, and laser cataract surgery is the new gold standard for cataract removal. Laser cataract surgery is different from traditional cataract surgery because it is bladeless, more precise, and you have the choice in lens replacement that provides you with the best vision outcome. Not only is the procedure safer and more customized, it’s also available to you when you’re ready for cataract surgery. Our technology gives you another option over traditional cataract surgery without having to wait on insurance to approve a procedure. For a minimal investment, you’ll be able to see clearer when you’re ready.
The bladeless cataract surgery is state-of-the-art because the procedure is all done by machine. With this surgery, the LenSx laser cataract machine gives a full measurement and 3D mapping of the eye. Once the eye is measured and mapped, the laser opens the clear, cellophane-like capsule that wraps the natural crystalline of the eye. The old cataract is then removed. Finally, the machine implants a clear, artificial lens where the natural lens used to be. This implant is known as an intraocular lens (IOL). The entire procedure typically takes less than 10 minutes to perform and the technology makes it completely painless. Following the surgery, you won’t be able to see or feel the lens. It requires no care and becomes a permanent part of your eye. Following the surgery, it usually takes 6 to 12 weeks for the brain to adapt to the new lenses and for ultimate vision improvements to take effect.
If you’re struggling with a cataract now and want a better, safer option, look no further than Vision Care Specialists. We’ll recommend the right premium lenses and timing that traditional cataract surgery cannot give you. Get back to living your life back in high-def with laser cataract surgery from Vision Care Specialists!
