Featured Procedures

Femto-Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery, or FLACS, is a cataract surgery treatment that reduces 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.
