The Alcon LenSx laser is the first femtosecond laser that has been cleared for use in cataract surgery. The laser allows trained surgeons to perform some of the most complex steps in cataract surgery with the assistance of advanced laser technology. The Alcon LenSx is designed to make clean precision on every plane of the anterior chamber of the eye. Grosinger, Spigelman & Grey utilizes this technology to decrease recovery time and improve overall eye health, post-surgery.
The Alcon LenSx laser provides a significant upgrade compared to manual analog surgery. The LenSx laser can also be used to treat presbyopia, a common vision condition which affects many people 40 years of age or older. Presbyopia is the hardening of the lens of the eye, and can lead to major vision loss when not treated. The Alcon LenSx aids the ophthalmologists to perform refractive lens exchange, which involves replacing the eye’s natural lens with an implant, stopping further presbyopia vision deterioration.
Used in more cataract surgeries than any other femtosecond laser in the world, the Alcon LenSx laser is quickly becoming a physician favorite, for good reason. The benefits of using this particular laser for cataract surgery include: precise architecture, OCT imaging technology, versatile fragmentation patterns and an easy to use interface.
It is estimated that the system has been used by over 3,500 surgeons in over 67 countries. To learn more about the Alcon LenSx, please visit our LenSx procedure page. For an appointment, please call our office at (248) 221-1022.
