If you or someone you care for has been diagnosed with cataracts, you’re certainly not alone — cataracts are a natural part of the aging process, and they affect more than 24 million Americans over 40. You’ve likely noticed that the cloudy vision caused by cataracts can affect your ability to enjoy activities like knitting, playing cards, watching TV, reading and golfing.
The good news is cataract procedures are one of the most commonly performed surgeries in the U.S., with more than 3 million taking place each year. That means 3 million patients just like you are getting back to their favorite activities every year. Many of them are doing it with the help of the LenSx® Laser, which offers precision and predictability.
What exactly is the LenSx® Laser?
While our eyes all share the same basic anatomy, your eyes are totally unique when it comes to their size, depth, curvature and other key features. The LenSx® Laser allows your surgeon to plan and perform a procedure that’s completely customized for each of your eyes. For more than a decade, femtosecond lasers have helped surgeons perform LASIK with unparalleled precision and accuracy. Now the LenSx® Laser brings advanced accuracy and reproducibility to cataract surgery.
