Dr. Pattnaik’s Laser Eye Institute is a Super Specialty Eye hospital has acquired the First LenSx (Alcon USA) Femtosecond Laser for Cataract Surgery in Delhi. LenSx is currently the only FDA (USA) approved Laser for Cataract surgery.
LASER Cataract surgery is the latest technology for Safe and Perfect cataract operation each and every time done with LASER rays without using any blade.
Till now the procedure for cataract operation was Phaco-emulsification or “Phaco” in which the cataract is emulsified with ultrasonic waves and is then removed from the eye through a small cut from which a Foldable IOL is inserted.
The LenSx Femtosecond laser will perform the anterior capsulotomy(The round opening in the membrane) , will divide the cataract into multiple pieces according to the choice of the surgeon and make corneal incisions. All this without any Blade and without entering the eye. The opening in the capsule is twice as strong and 5 times more accurate in size and shape as compared to the manual opening. The placement of cuts is defined by the surgeon to control post cataract astigmatism.
The lens softening and fragmentation helps in easy emulsification and removal of Cataract. The corneal incisions are multiplanar and selfsealing.
This revolutionary technology increases the safety and precision in Cataract surgery.
