A Closer Look at Our Bladeless Technology

Cataract surgery was traditionally performed by hand using a very thin blade. Today, advances in technology enable doctors to offer cataract surgery that is completely bladeless. Using powerful, accurate pulses of light to modify your eye offers many advantages over conventional cataract surgery. At Eye and Laser Centers of New Jersey, Dr. Lalin utilizes Alcon’s LenSx® femtosecond laser system, the world's most popular brand of femtosecond laser used during cataract surgery. In fact, more than 400,000 patients have undergone treatment with this advanced technology. In addition to being precise, efficient, and safe, the LenSx® laser system is equipped with high-definition optical coherence tomography (OCT) scanning technology. This technology allows us to model your eye and create a detailed treatment plan customized according to your unique needs.

Features and Benefits

Using a femtosecond laser to perform cataract surgery offers several advantages over the traditional procedure. With its advanced system and OCT scanning capability, the Alcon LenSx® laser system can achieve a level of accuracy that is virtually impossible to match by hand. Most notably, the Alcon LenSx® femtosecond laser system:
  • Automates some of the most difficult steps of cataract surgery
  • Enables Dr. Lalin to precisely program the size, shape, and location of each incision
  • Provides a 3-D image of the entire front of the eye during treatment planning and surgery

Using this tool, we can perform a more precise incision in the lens of the eye. This reduces your risk of experiencing visual distortions after surgery and helps to ensure that your intraocular lens (IOL) will be held securely in place. Furthermore, laser incisions do not require stitches, so patients can heal more quickly with fewer side effects. Overall, cataract surgery with the Alcon LenSx® femtosecond laser system is generally more accurate, efficient, and effective, allowing you to achieve optimal results.
