Laser Cataract Surgery


Cataract surgery is an outpatient procedure performed at the hospital and usually requires just a few hours of your time from start to finish. The cataract surgeons at Hayden Vision - American Eye Institute can usually perform the blade free, laser cataract surgery procedure in 6-8 minutes. Surgery is the only way a cataract can be treated. There are no medications, dietary supplements or exercise that have been shown to prevent or cure cataracts.


In laser cataract surgery, a laser is used to make an incision as opposed to an actual blade. Your surgeon will use the computer-assisted laser system to provide the most precise and accurate circular opening (capsulorhexis). This portion of the procedure is critical to excellent vision results. After the circular opening is made, laser cataract system will your surgeon in lens fragmentation. After lens fragmentation, the cataract is removed and an IOL (intraocular lens) will placed into the eye. Patients can choose a traditional monofocal lens or update to a premium lens that can reduce or eliminate dependency on glasses after cataract surgery

At Hayden Vision - American Eye Institute, we are proud to be the first ophthalmology practice in this area to offer patients several exciting vision correction choices which may reduce or eliminate the need for eyeglasses after cataract surgery.
