This is the first femtosecond laser cataract system to be approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States. The approved procedures include: building the front capsulotomy that includes creating a circular incision inside the eye; breaking the cataract; and creating laser incisions on the cornea region. By specification, it has a laser data entry located at the left side, a joystick for control, and a 3D image screen at the right. All these features guide the eye surgeon in the entire cataract process.
This particular laser system is popularly used worldwide because of its derived numerous benefits which include better process automation, accurate and customizable incision structure, and perfect capsulotomies. In addition, it also offers flexible breaking patterns and efficient single-piece patient system. Moreover, it provides an avant-garde, high definition 3D technology.
The LenSx is a bladeless laser system that enables the eye surgeons to plan and execute surgeries to precise, customized specifications not achievable with other surgical procedures. It can aid in treating several eye conditions such as astigmatism by making accurate incisions in the cornea planes. Astigmatism is an eye ailment in which the eye exterior leans to a more oval figure rather than a round figure. It can also help remove cataracts efficiently. This is done by softening cataracts for simpler elimination. In the surgery, the murky lenses are extracted and, in most circumstances, taken place with an intraocular lens (IOLs).
The laser system analyzes high-definition eye images, enabling the surgeons to customize every process. The 3D images aid in the appropriate alignment of laser created incisions carrying a new degree of accuracy to cataract surgery. It offers patients with computer-administered accuracy as it automates some of the most difficult procedures of refractive cataract surgical operation. The laser takes the place of the conventional hand-held blade to make the best of all incisions for improved, reproducible surgeries.
