The eye doctors at Dominion Eye Care in Manassas and Warrenton, VA specialize in laser-assisted cataract surgery. Laser-assisted cataract surgery replaces or assists the use of hand-held surgical equipment. Laser surgery improves the precision, accuracy and reproducibility of each of the steps involved with cataract removal. It also reduces the risks and improves the outcome of the surgery. The procedure takes about 20 minutes and recovery takes about a month.
Laser cataract surgery follows a precise plan utilizing 3-D imaging of the eye. OCT or Optical Coherence Tomography as it is called, makes an incision in a specific location, at a specific depth and at a specific length by a femtosecond laser for an exact surgical procedure. This procedure ensures that the surgery is precise. The laser helps with cataract removal because it softens the cataract and helps break up the cataract into smaller pieces with less chance of stress on the eye which is more prevalent with traditional ultrasonic equipment.
If you are planning to undergo cataract surgery in VA ask our Dominion Eye Care ophthalmologists about the use of laser-assisted cataract surgery.
