The LenSX® Laser
Dr. Wilmarth uses the LenSx® Laser manufactured by industry leader Alcon to perform cataract surgery, giving him ultimate control over every aspect of your procedure. The integrated optical coherence tomography utilized by this femtosecond laser captures detailed images of your eyes and provides Dr. Wilmarth with precise measurements that allow for individual variances and absolute customization of your procedure. Such details and precision are simply not possible through traditional surgical methods, a factor that has seen laser cataract surgery in general and those performed with the LenSx® Laser specifically, increase significantly since its introduction.
Benefits offered by laser cataract surgery include:
Complete customization of your procedure
Enhanced precision in the removal of the cloudy lens
Greater accuracy in the performance of the capsulotomy
Better centering of the intraocular lens
Correction of corneal astigmatism.
Because the cataract is softened by the laser before being removed, vision problems that can arise from capsule breakage are greatly reduced. Studies have shown that laser cataract surgery reduces phacoemulsification time, in turn, reducing risks for complications such as corneal swelling and inflammation. During your initial cataract surgery consultation at our Roseville office, Dr. Wilmarth can discuss these and other benefits offered by the LenSX® Laser in greater detail.
Good Candidates for Laser Cataract Surgery
The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for laser cataract surgery is through a one-on-one consultation and evaluation with Dr. Wilmarth. Due to the enhanced precision and reliability of this technique, it is often an appealing option for those suffering the vision problems caused by cataracts. It should be noted however that even traditional cataract surgery enjoys an incredibly high rate of success and may still be an option even in cases where laser surgery is not. This is something that is best determined by Dr. Wilmarth and can be further reviewed during the planning of your cataract surgery.
