Computer driven Laser Cataract Surgery
It has been called a bold leap forward. Performing cataract surgery with a computer driven laser has been the dream of eye surgeons for many years. Custom Laser Cataract Surgery represents one of the great surgical advances of our time.
Dr. William Rand, the director of the Rand Eye Institute is quoted as saying: “The accuracy of the laser system is a marvel of technology.” “There has never been anything like this before.”
While the skill, experience and proficiency of the cataract surgeon is still the predominant factor in achieving the best results, the precision of laser system adds a whole new dimension to obtaining the best vision possible.
Refractive Cataract Surgery Options
Automatic Focusing-Multifocal and Presbyopia Technology With Laser Cataract Surgery
If reading without glasses is your priority, you should select the multifocal option. You can regain the ability to focus for near and far without eyeglasses. There are different types of multifocals and accommodating implants approved by the FDA to correct presbyopia. All are available at the Rand Eye Institute.
