LenSx® Laser Technology
Don’t lose sight of the things you love
You take in the world through your eyes, so if your vision is clouded by cataracts, you may be losing the ability to enjoy the very things, places, and people that make your life enjoyable. Cataract surgery is one of the most common surgical procedures and could help you regain what you’ve lost in terms of vision and quality of life.
LenSx® Laser Technology
Now available at Riverview Medical Center, as the only hospital in New Jersey to provide it, LensX laser technology provides a bladeless, computer controlled laser approach to cataract surgery, in order to provide the most custom, gentle, and precise cataract surgery experience.
What is LenSx?
With traditional cataract surgery surgeons will make tiny incisions to remove the blurred lens of the eye using traditional surgical tools and blades. With LenSx however, your surgeon is able to remove the cataract using a bladeless, femtosecond laser to break the cataract and make all of the necessary incisions to remove it, eliminating the need for use of a manual blade.
Using the bladeless, computer-controlled laser provides the surgeon with a high-resolution image or “map of your eye” in order to plan the most precise procedure for your individual eye. Adding computer-control to the key steps of cataract surgery also provides the surgeon with real-time images during the course of the procedure.
- A gentler and easier approach to cataract surgery, with little or no discomfort during treatment
- A more precise treatment
- Tailored treatment through advanced technology like multi-focal lenses, which may reduce the need for glasses or contacts after surgery
- A highly customized procedure
- Quicker recovery and reduced inflammation following surgery
Am I a candidate for LenSx?
Most patients with cataracts are candidates for the LenSx procedure. Exceptions may include those with small pupils, certain corneal diseases, and some forms of glaucoma. Talk to your doctor to see if LenSx is a good option for you.
