Impaired vision because of cataracts lowers your quality of life. You will have a difficult time enjoying hobbies or even doing routine tasks because of poor eyesight. With cataract surgery from Del Negro & Senft Eye Associates, you improve your condition and still get to enjoy the things you like doing. Our first-rate eye specialists will assess the extent of damage and offer a long-term solution.
No matter what you value most in life – working, reading, golfing, watching your children or grandchildren, or just taking in the scenery – the level of enjoyment you get out of those activities is very dependent on your sight. If your vision is clouded by cataracts, you may be limited in enjoying the things that are most important to you. Cataract surgery can significantly improve your quality of life.
When you choose cataract surgery with Dr. Del Negro, Dr. Senft, or Dr. Glatman, we make sure you have the best and most advanced options available to you. That’s why we are excited to be the first eye surgeons in the area to offer Laser Cataract Surgery to provide our patients the opportunity to achieve their best possible vision.
What is the LenSx® Laser?
The LenSx® laser is a femtosecond laser that gives Drs. Del Negro, Senft and Glatman computer controlled precision, allowing more accurate performance of some of the key steps of cataract surgery. Using a variety of highly advanced technologies, the LenSx captures precise, high resolution images of your eye. To further enhance accuracy, a patient interface connects your eye to the image-guided unit so that the LenSx laser computer and the surgeon commanding it have precise, real time images of your eye at all times during the procedure. These images allow the surgeon to accurately guide the laser in performing cataract surgery with a level of precision not previously possible.
Customized to Your Eyes
All human eyes may share the same basic anatomic structure, but every eye is unique in terms of size, depth and curvature of the cornea, size of the lens, and length of the eye. These parameters are carefully measured and mapped prior to surgery. The LenSx laser uses optical coherence tomography to capture the precise, high resolution images of your eye. This, along with the information obtained prior to surgery, allows Drs. Del Negro, Senft and Glatman to plan and perform surgery specific to each eye.
With standard cataract surgery, the incision is made with a blade and access to the cataract is obtained using a needle. Not only does the LenSx laser create extremely precise cataract incisions and break up the cloudy lens for easier removal, it also provides the surgeons with the ability to correct/improve astigmatism with more accuracy and precision than ever before.
Gentle, accurate, and precise, the LenSx laser gives Drs. Del Negro, Senft and Glatman the ability to perform blade-free cataract surgery. This allows for the best possible effective positioning of the advanced technology lens replacement implants and provides the patient with the most predictable post operative visual results.
The Advantages Are Clear
- The femtosecond laser makes more precise incisions when compared to the traditional method.
- The LenSx laser technology gives Drs. Del Negro, Senft and Glatman the ability to reduce astigmatism with greater accuracy. This allows for better performance of the advanced technology lenses and, ultimately, provides the best possible visual outcome.
- Laser precision creates a uniform, circular opening in the capsular bag that is perfectly centered; this is critical for effective lens position to ensure your best visual outcome.
