Restore Your Vision with Laser Cataract Surgery

Laser Cataract Surgery is an important procedure to help you restore your vision. If you live in the Las Vegas area and have been struggling with cataract problems, then this laser procedure just might be for you.

First of all, a skilled surgeon will cut an incision in the area of the eye where the sclera meets the cornea. They will then proceed horizontally and then vertically for approximately 2.5 mm and proceed to break up and remove the cataract that is usually behind the pupil. The surgeon then inserts an intraocular lens in order to replace the patient’s natural cloudy lens. The laser is used in order for the surgeon to gain a 3-D image of the eye and to reduce the chance of burning the incision, which could lead to healthier eyes except they would have astigmatism.

An individual may elect to go with laser cataract surgery in Las Vegas for several reasons. First of all, the laser surgery is safer because it breaks up the cataract and makes it easier to remove. Secondly, the laser surgery can reduce the chance of capsule breakage. In cataract surgery, the most important thing is to ensure that the capsule is well-preserved. The laser is minimally invasive and offers the patient the best chance of a preserved capsule. Finally, laser surgery offers the greatest chance of reducing other complications that can occur, such as a detached retina.
