Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery
Samaritan Medical Center and Dr. Noaman Sanni are pleased to bring Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery to Northern New York. Our patients now have the option of choosing a computer-controlled bladeless cataract laser for their cataract surgery procedure. Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery is the most technologically advanced option for cataract patients today. A custom map is made of your eye which means the cataract surgery procedure is 100% customized. The laser uses integrated optical coherence tomography (OCT) which captures precise, high resolution images of your eyes. The laser uses a femtosecond laser to make the corneal incisions, break apart the cloudy cataract lens and create a perfect size opening in the clear covering of the eye lens, where the cataract forms.
Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery automates the most challenging steps of traditional cataract surgery. Prior to the introduction of this laser, traditional cataract surgery involved the creation of several small incisions during the procedure. All of these incisions were made manually with a blade. With LenSx, the surgeon can create those incisions with a significantly higher degree of precision. This combined with the real-time image guided feature aids the physician in seeing the activity taking place in the eye during surgery.
