Our practice, located in Plantation, FL, offers a groundbreaking laser cataract procedure that is 10 times more accurate in removing cataracts than traditional cataract surgery. Most cataract patients are candidates for this simple, outpatient procedure which can be determined during a quick consultation. Cataract surgery is one of the safest and most effective surgical procedures performed today. If you are over the age of 50 and have experienced cloudy vision or loss of vision, you may have a cataract.
Refractive Cataract Surgery Laser Procedure
During the Refractive Laser procedure, a precise laser is used to create a circular opening for accessing and removing the cataract. The cloudy lens inside your eye is gently removed and replaced with an artificial lens, known as a refractive intraocular lens (IOL). This new lens will restore your vision so you can see with clarity. Additionally, your customized treatment may reduce your need for corrective glasses or contact lenses following surgery.
