Laser and Traditional Cataract Removal
Advancement in laser technology has allowed for amazing opportunities in the realm of eye surgery to arise. Laser technology gives eye surgeons the exact precision that is required to perform surgeries like laser cataract removal and LASIK vision correction. In the past, cataract surgery was handled without the use of laser technology. Today, at Gulf Coast Eye Institute, we provide our patients the option of having laser cataract surgery over traditional cataract surgery. The sophistication of laser technology provides a higher level of care to our patients. With laser cataract surgery, all variability is taken out of the equation as the equipment utilizes ultrasound to make incredibly accurate incisions and breaks up the cataract for removal.
Our Laser Technology for Cataracts
For all of our laser cataract surgeries, we utilize the latest technology in order to provide patients with an advanced level of care. Our laser is used in the initial steps of both laser cataract and LASIK eye surgery. Since this laser is used in all of our laser procedures, our eye surgeons have beyond proficient experience in using these advanced laser devices. The laser that we utilize provides surgeons and patients with several advantages over traditional cataract surgery. With this laser, the surgeon can produce a real-time, high-contrast display of your eye, and provide imagery that will make the procedure easier and faster than traditional methods. The laser also provides patients enhanced comfort, as the laser does not transfer any heat to the eye. Lastly, with eye laser surgery for cataracts, our equipment minimizes procedure time and enhances surgeon control. This results in greater success and less irritation post operation. We assure all our patients are in excellent hands when receiving laser cataract surgery at GCEI.
Vision After Cataract Surgery
You may be wondering, How long does it take for vision to clear after cataract surgery? Vision results can vary from patient to patient and by what type of Intraocular lens you receive. You will most likely see an immediate improvement in your vision after surgery with a continuous, steady improvement over time. Most patients report a vast improvement in glare, halos, and night vision after the laser cataract surgery procedure is complete.
