Laser Cataract Surgery with LenSx Laser in San Diego – Dr. Burns
Serving patients from San Diego, Temecula, Hemet, Sun City, Murrieta
San Diego laser eye surgery provider, Dr. Richard Burns, offers the advanced laser cataract surgery procedure with the state-of-the-art LenSx laser technology. The LenSx laser is an FDA approved femtosecond system that allows Dr. Burns to customize each cataract surgery procedure and deliver improved vision correction results with maximum control and micron-level laser precision.
How Does LenSx Technology Work?
The LenSx technology allows Dr. Burns to perform certain cataract surgery steps without surgical handheld devices and blades. The LenSx creates precise corneal incisions, anterior capsulotomies and lens fragmentation, thereby eliminating the need for scalpels and the ultrasonic probe traditionally used to break up the eye’s crystalline lens prior to removal.
Laser cataract surgery offers a higher level of accuracy and control. In addition, it features revolutionary 3D technology, enabling the surgeon to visualize and customize each procedure and swiftly perform the most challenging aspects of cataract surgery. By optimizing the alignment of corneal incisions and anterior capsulotomies, laser cataract surgery increases the possibility of better visual outcomes after cataract surgery.
The benefits associated with the LenSx laser include:
- Increased precision, accuracy and control
- Shorter time in surgery
- Customized treatment
- 3D visualization technology
- Decreased risk of complication associates with corneal incisions
