Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery!

by | Dec 23, 2020 | Medical

As the decades progress, new medical technology emerges that paves the way for increased efficiency, better predictability, and improved safety when it comes to tedious procedures and unique cases. The Ziemer FEMTO LDV Z8 laser is the latest technology that we have introduced to Helm Vision Group. This laser has transformed our LASIK laser vision correction procedures to be completely blade free and assists us with cataract procedures, as well.
Our primary, initial reason for acquiring the Ziemer FEMTO LDV Z8 laser was to perform part of the procedure for LASIK laser vision correction, replacing the microkeratome blade. This versatile laser, however, is also capable of performing laser-assisted cataract surgery so we began using it for this purpose. What we have discovered through its use has been surprising! I was surprised to find that cataract surgery was made easier for me as a surgeon. The precision of the laser-made incisions in the cornea and in the lens capsule are amazing.
The most important help provided by the laser though, is that it softens the cataract by lasering it into smaller pieces. That makes it so that it requires less ultrasound energy to remove it. This results in easier surgery and a faster recovery. For some cataracts that are more advanced, femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery truly is a safer procedure.
Safety is a priority at Helm Vision Group. We have a long history of delivering outstanding visual outcomes to our patients. The addition of the Ziemer FEMTO LVD Z8 laser adds to our ability to provide additional measures of safety and precision.
At Helm Vision Group we are committed to providing the highest technology available to provide our patients with the best care. Our offerings match what is available at only the finest institutions in the country. If your vision has notably declined and you know that you have cataracts or would like to find out if you have them, call our office at 661-259-3937 to schedule a consultation. There are many causes of blurry vision but there are many cures! We look forward to serving you!
