Femtosecond Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery (FLACS)

FemtoLaser cataract and lens surgery stands at the forefront of cataract and lens surgery, representing the most advancements in the field.

This cutting-edge laser technology allow surgeons to perform exceptionally precise micro-surgery without relying on traditional blades, needles,
or general anaesthesia. Moreover, it provides a unique opportunity to address astigmatism simultaneously with cataract surgery, resulting in an enhanced quality of vision.

The femtosecond laser emits short pulses of light, elevating surgical procedures to unprecedented levels of accuracy. This precision not only promises superior outcomes for patients but also mitigates the risk of complications. Additionally, it translates to quicker surgeries and faster recovery times.

Femtosecond cataract surgery represents a pioneering technology only available at few selected clinics across UK, including Optimal Vision

Benefits of Femtosecond Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery:

Precision for Superior Outcomes:

The laser's accuracy ensures better results and minimises the risk of complications, offering patients an optimised and safer surgical experience.

Astigmatism Correction:

Surgeons can efficiently correct astigmatism during the surgery, contributing to improved postoperative vision quality.

Faster Procedures and Recovery:

The precision of the laser streamlines the surgical process, reducing both procedure and recovery times. This not only enhances the convenience for patients during surgery but also diminishes the need for deep anaesthesia.

Latest advance technology in lens surgery:

Stands at the forefront of cataract and lens surgery, representing the most advancements in the field.

Preferred option for premium multifocal lenses:

High quality and precision is preferred for premium lenses used for presbyopia correction including multifocal, Trifocal and EDOF lenses.

How Femtosecond Laser Assisted Lens/Cataract Surgery Works:

In FLACS, the laser swiftly creates an opening in the lens and divides the cataract into small, manageable pieces within seconds. The subsequent phase involves the surgeon removing these cataract pieces and implanting a new lens conventionally.

Post-Surgery Vision Improvement:

The laser proves particularly beneficial when dealing with dense cataracts or challenging openings. Its accuracy is crucial for implanting specialised lenses, such as multifocal or presbyopic lenses that correct both distance and near vision, or toric lenses addressing astigmatism.

Moreover, the laser can rectify minor astigmatism by precisely reshaping the cornea, leading to a more reliable and predictable vision outcome compared to manual methods. As the laser requires less energy than ultrasound to break up the cataract, it reduces the risk of corneal swelling, facilitating a swifter recovery process.
