Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness in the world. Cataracts are a natural clouding of the eye’s lens, causing blurred vision.
Northeastern Eye Institute proudly offers customized laser cataract surgery, an advanced procedure that can quickly restore your eyesight and even provide you with 20/20 vision.
Laser Cataract Surgery Customized For You
No two individuals have eyes that are exactly the same. Your eyes are differentiated from others by their unique size, depth, and curvature. Because of this, it is essential to customize your laser cataract surgery to ensure that all of the distinctive properties of your eyes are considered.
Laser cataract surgery utilizes a computerized laser. Compared to the blade methods used in traditional cataract surgery, the incisions made by a computerized laser are significantly more precise. As a result, the experienced ophthalmologists at Northeastern Eye Institute can accurately measure and map out your eye’s distinct properties before your procedure, ensuring a truly customized experience.
Generally speaking, during your customized laser cataract surgery:
- A laser will make a precise incision in the cornea.
- The laser will soften and break up the cloudy lens.
- The lens is removed.
- After the natural lens is removed, it is replaced with an intraocular lens (IOL).
In order to avoid complications and achieve the best possible results, it is imperative to get screened early for cataract surgery. Northeastern Eye Institute offers premium eye care, and we take pride in helping you get the best vision possible under our care.
