Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery Now Available

Suffering from cataracts is a natural part of aging. As we grow older, the natural lens of our eyes often stiffens, and without its youthful suppleness, the lens loses its ability to focus, creating vision problems.

According the National Eye Institute, people can have an age-related cataract in their 40s and 50s, but it is usually after age 60 that most cataracts start affecting vision. Common symptoms of cataracts include cloudy or blurry vision, glare or the appearance of halos around lights, poor night vision, frequent prescription changes in your eyeglass or contact lenses and double vision.

But there’s good news: most cataracts can easily corrected with a simple surgery, in which the natural lens of your eye is replaced with an artificial lens.  And, just as people can choose between different types of lenses depending on their daily activities, they can now choose how their cataract procedures

 are performed.

UAP Clinic Eye Center now offers a highly advanced laser-assisted cataract surgery using the VICTUS® platform. This state-of-the-art femtosecond technology offers laser precision and is designed with patients’ comfort in mind. Femtosecond lasers emit optical pulses as short as one-quadrillionth of a second. The ultra-short pulses do not transfer heat or shock to the material being cut and can make surgical incisions with extreme precision.

In addition, the VICTUS platform provides real-time, three-dimensional imaging of the eye to aid physicians in planning and monitoring the procedure. The combination of technology and expertise of UAP Clinic Opthamologists Chirag Patel, M.D. and Land Pickrell, M.D., helps ensure the best possible outcomes for the patients.
