Laser Cataract Surgery
Jacksoneye is pleased to be the first practice in Lake Villa, IL to offer patients a superior level of service and a truly bladeless cataract surgical experience. Dr. Jackson utilizes the LENSAR laser. The LENSAR Laser Cataract System is one such instrument that uses high resolution 3-D imaging with advanced laser applications. This gives surgeons the ability to make more precise incisions in the cornea and lens allowing for a lens replacement procedure that is customized to an individual eye’s own unique anatomy. The manual techniques used by the most excellent and experienced eye surgeons cannot match the extraordinary accuracy of the femtosecond laser incisions.
What Is LENSAR?
Although it’s a common belief that lasers have been used in cataract surgery for years, this is not true. With the introduction of the LENSAR™ Laser Cataract System, laser refractive cataract surgery has become a reality, and Dr. Jackson can now remove your cataract in a more advanced way than ever before. This type of bladeless cataract surgery is made even more precise by utilizing an unique imaging system, Augmented Reality™, that provides a detailed, 3-D view of your eye.
With this advanced technology, he can offer you a better, more precise refractive cataract removal and lens replacement procedure that is customized to your eye’s own unique size and shape.
How does LENSAR work?
Dr. Jackson utilizes the LENSAR™ Laser Cataract System in part of your refractive cataract procedure because it is safe, effective, and uses the same proven laser technology that’s been used in LASIK procedures for over a decade. Other benefits include:
- A unique, high-resolution, 3D view of your eye that allows your surgeon to tailor your treatment, which can improve visual outcomes.
- The most advanced technology available, which may reduce the time it takes to remove your cataracts.
- A system designed with comfort in mind, so you can relax, knowing the latest technology available is being used to treat one of your most valuable senses – your sight.
Will LENSAR make a difference for me?
Using the laser, Dr. Jackson will tailor the procedure for each individual patient with the goal of reducing dependency on glasses or contact lenses. With an improved level of precision, premium intraocular lenses are placed with the most advanced technology available.
LENSAR’s superior Augmented Reality imaging system represents a more intelligent approach to cataract surgery, allowing Dr. Jackson to see everything inside your eye in greater detail. It is LENSAR’s precision, imaging, and laser incisions that allow Dr. Jackson to ensure that the cataract is safely removed and that the new intraocular lens is perfectly placed, resulting in outstanding refractive visual outcomes.
