LenSx® Can Give You the Gift of Clear Vision
Using cutting-edge laser technology and advanced surgical techniques, the vision experts at GW Eye Associates in the greater San Diego area can effectively treat your vision condition with LenSX® and other refractive surgery techniques. Our mission is to provide you with the highest-quality eye care in an unhurried, caring, and safe environment. Our doctors are always searching for innovative ways to restore vision and improve patients' lives. Using the revolutionary LenSx® Laser, the surgeons at our La Jolla, CA, office can clear your clouded vision more efficiently and more precisely than ever. The system helps our team to better tailor cataract and refractive treatment to the needs of the patient to ensure the best results possible.
Our team in La Jolla is among a few in the San Diego area able to perform cutting-edge refractive, astigmatism, and cataract corrective surgery with the assistance of LenSx® Laser technology. Using a 3-D surgical display, the LenSx® Laser helps our San Diego surgeons to better visualize, personalize, and perform most of the intricate, difficult aspects of cataract surgery.
The image-guided system affords our vision care specialists an in-depth look at every feature of the patient's eye so that a more precise incision can be made and a more comfortable and skillful cataract removal can be performed. The laser helps our team to see different angles of your eye, which would otherwise never be seen during a surgical procedure.
What to Expect During the Procedure
The LenSx® laser snugly conforms to the shape of your cornea, allowing a real-time image of your eye to be generated onto a computer. At that time, our doctors can plan where they want the laser to make an incision, and then a few precise, small cuts are made in the designated portion of the eye using laser beams. Once the incision has been made, the laser softens the cataract within the cavity of your eye and fragments it into four pieces. At that time, traditional cataract removal methods are used to extract the clouded particles and precisely place an intraocular lens (IOL).
Using the LenSx® system at our facility in San Diego helps to reduce n the risk of complications and improve the safety and accuracy of cataract surgery.
