Femtosecond Laser Cataract Surgery

At Optimal Vision, we carry out femtosecond laser cataract surgery using a femtosecond laser without blades. This is the most recent advancement in cataract surgery which is more precise than the traditional style. We started using this technology in its early days, and only a limited number of clinics offer this treatment in the UK, including us. 

The Definition Of Femtosecond Laser Cataract Surgery

It is the most recent advancement in cataract surgery.

Before now, traditional blades or scalpels were used to create a small opening and disintegrate the cataract. But presently, this has changed with the use of a unique type of laser - welcome to the new generation of cataract surgery. This laser which is called the femtosecond laser, is designed to precisely bore an opening on the right spot within the lens and cornea.

How Is Femtosecond Laser Cataract Surgery Done?

This highly advanced laser technology making waves in cataract surgery involves a  precise and straightforward procedure of taking out cataract (a misty covering of the natural lens inside the eye) and implanting an artificial lens to treat poor eyesight. The outcome is just the same as with the traditional method of removing the cataract.

The procedure for this optical work is explained in three simple steps as follows:

Precise laser operation

Just like what's obtainable in traditional surgery where the cornea gets to be incised, the femtosecond laser cataract surgery employs a more stable method than the regular surgical knife - a special laser! Following its programming, the laser will bore the exact size and depth of the micro-opening in the cornea; a more precise solution.

Highly accurate capsulotomy

After the cornea has been penetrated, the laser continues to break up the capsule bag which lies around the lens. The surgeon can now get to the cloudy lens protein responsible for cataract formation. In the traditional style of removing a cataract, at this point, a needle will be used. But here, a laser is used instead. This ensures that the outcome is accurate.

Cataract extraction

At last, the femtosecond laser is used to break up the cataract which the surgeon removes from the eye(s) after that.

What Are The Perks Of Femtosecond Laser Cataract Surgery?

The most significant benefit of this improved cataract surgery is its precision! Please take a look at some of its advantages over the traditional surgery.

  • It's more precise and not dangerous. There is enough room for surgeons to plan ahead concerning the very spot the incision will be made. This eliminates any chance of error while stepping up accuracy.
  • No need for needles and blades. You don't need to be scared if you are needle-phobic. Femtosecond laser cataract surgery doesn't use blades either. The entire process is completed by laser.
  • High efficiency. The ultrasound energy needed in the extraction of the cataract-inflamed lens is lowered with the use of laser surgery.
  • High effectiveness. Since the opening in the capsule bag is more precisely done, the replacement lens is more stable during femtosecond laser surgery.
  • Stronger and self-sealing micro-opening. When a laser is used for making an incision in the cornea, there are chances that the cut will seal up on its own and the healing will be very strong.
  • Improved vision. Following a femtosecond laser cataract surgery, high-quality lenses like the intraocular lenses inserted during the procedure can now work better. This means that patients can get more out of the visual benefits of these innovative lenses.

What's The Cost Of The Femtosecond Laser Cataract Surgery?

Each eye to be operated on using this approach costs an additional £500.

Key Takeaways

Only at Optimal Vision and a few other eye centres in the UK will you find this latest innovative procedure in eye surgery. This implies that not every eye clinic out there provides this treatment.

Femtosecond laser cataract surgery is safe and works very well to correct bad eyesight, especially when professionals like us carry it out.

The procedure has the most significant advantage over other eye treatment methods since it is precise.

It allows newer premium lenses to be more effective and beneficial to patients.

Would You Like An Appointment?

Should you be interested in knowing more about femtosecond laser cataract surgery and how it can help your condition, don't hesitate to schedule an appointment with us right away.

Not everyone may be able to get this treatment. Part of your appointment will involve examining your present eye condition to know if femtosecond laser is what you need.

Whatever the case, keep in mind that we provide one of the finest eye care in the UK, and will be glad to help you. Remember that your eyes need the best care available, and we provide just that.
