Laser-Assisted Cataract Removal (LenSx)


A state-of-the-art technique for cataract removal.

Although many patients enjoy success with traditional cataract surgery, using the LenSx computer-controlled laser to assist in cataract surgery allows for even more precision and accuracy. Ophthalmology Associates of Western New York is proud to offer this innovative option to patients with cataracts that impact their quality of life. It’s a safe, comfortable, and effective procedure for those who are undergoing cataract surgery.

Benefits of Laser-Assisted Cataract Removal

As compared to the blade used in traditional cataract surgery, the LenSx computer-controlled laser:

  • Creates even cleaner, more accurate incisions
  • Requires fewer instruments
  • Removes the clouded lens quicker
  • Allows for better lens positioning
  • Offers more predictable results
  • Is an easier method for patients with astigmatism

In addition, laser surgery can be combined with the insertion of most advanced lens implants, helping to reduce or eliminate the need for patients to wear glasses.
