LenSx® Custom Laser Cataract Surgery
in South Florida
Rand Eye Institute is pleased to offer custom laser cataract surgery using the LenSx laser to Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Miami and other South Florida cataract patients.
It has been called a bold leap forward. Performing cataract surgery with a laser has been the dream of eye surgeons for many years. And finally, the FDA has approved laser cataract surgery as safe and effective, and it’s here now at the Rand Eye Institute. LenSx custom laser cataract surgery represents one of the great surgical advances of our time.
While the skill, experience and proficiency of the cataract surgeon is still the predominant factor in achieving the best results, the precision of LenSx adds a whole new dimension to obtaining the best vision possible. It has been said that “In experienced hands, this new technology raises the cataract surgery to an art form.”
While cataract surgery has been one of the safest and most successful operations, LenSx’s bladeless, advanced procedure, brings a new level of precision to the surgery, creating a personalized surgical experience. It is a major improvement in the ability to treat astigmatism more accurately.
LenSx laser technology harnesses the power and precision of the femtosecond laser for the cataract surgery. It works by using optical coherence tomography (OCT) with near infrared light, to produce real-time digital analysis coupled with computer driven femtosecond laser application. Because the OCT is continuous in real-time, all of the eye structures are continuously displayed accurately in 3-dimensional (3D) digital representation. Providing 3D mapping, LenSx enables exact spacial placement within the eye for precise laser application.
Dr. William Rand, the founder and medical director of the Rand Eye Institute is regarded as one of the most experienced eye surgeons in the country. He is quoted as saying: “The accuracy of the LenSx system is a marvel of technology; there has never been anything like this before. One look at the video of this laser cataract procedure leaves even the most experienced eye doctor amazed at how far we have come.”
Now that LenSx has been approved for laser cataract surgery by the FDA, we at the Rand Eye Institute are proud to be one of the first to offer it to the South Florida community. At this point, it appears that the Rand Surgical Pavilion will be the only Joint Commission Accredited surgical facility in Southeast Florida to offer LenSx® laser cataract surgery.
The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval™ is awarded for demonstrating compliance with the Joint Commission’s national standards for health care quality and safety in Ambulatory Care Organizations. Joint Commission status is the highest level of surgical facility accreditation obtainable.
