What is Femto Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery and why should I consider it?
Femto Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery, or FLACS, reduces the astigmatism by relaxing the cornea at a precise depth, length, and orientation. The Femto Laser also replaces many of the steps during cataract surgery that require a blade – making this a bladeless procedure – and softens the cataract, allowing for an easier and smoother removal.
Traditional cataract surgery is an uncomplicated, straightforward
procedure that usually takes around 15 minutes. Generally, your doctor will
make a minor incision in your eye. A small ultrasound probe will break up and
remove your cataracts, and a new lens will be placed in your eye. Stitches are
usually not required, and a bandage or patch will be placed over your eye to
protect it afterward. CEENTA has more than 20 cataract surgeons in 12 offices
across North Carolina skilled in the latest treatment techniques and will
provide you with premier patient care.
When used in conjunction with multifocal lens implants, most patients achieve independence of glasses and contacts for both distance and near vision during their normal activities of daily living.
Why should I get cataract surgery?
Cataract surgery will not just eliminate cloudiness and reconnect you to the world around you, but you can get lenses that can correct your vision, too. Not only does this procedure greatly improve your quality of life, but it’s also a one-time procedure. Once you have cataract surgery. You can never get a cataract again.
