Benefits of Laser Cataract Surgery

There are a growing number of people who suffer from cataracts and are looking for the best solution to having them removed. For years the only way to remove them was with a blade. Traditional cataract surgery involves an incision in order to create a fold in the eyelid so the doctor has access to the cornea. Fortunately for cataract suffers now, there’s a more efficient laser procedure available.

Our experienced eye surgeons at Northeastern Eye Institute, in Scranton, say laser cataract surgery is a more accurate, advanced and efficient procedure for removing cataracts today.

Laser cataract surgery involves using technology to make a 3-D map of the eye and then our surgeon develops a plan for your surgery. This high-tech advancement has created a more precise procedure with more successful outcomes.

There are several benefits to choosing laser surgery versus the traditional blade:

  • Increased precision
  • Improved surgical results
  • Increased predictability of visual outcomes
  • Reduction in inflammation during surgery
  • Improved safety
