LenSx Laser Cataract Surgery

Taking your vision to the next level

Eye Care Professionals was the first practice in the state of Nevada to offer bladeless LenSx Surgery for the precise removal of cataracts. The addition of this advanced surgical option for our patients further demonstrates our continued commitment to leading the way in our region. This exciting technology will allow our Reno ophthalmologists to more precisely perform some of the most critical steps in cataract surgery. Thereby, LenSx Cataract Surgery will further refine the visual outcomes.

Our Reno ophthalmologists are pioneers in state-of-the-art techniques for cataract removal. We are a renowned clinic in Reno with years of experience providing fast, accurate, and safe procedures to help restore our patient’s vision. Through LenSx surgery, we further commit to offer the latest and most advanced methods of care.

LenSx Cataract Surgery in Reno for the removal of cataracts

A new class of cataract procedure

The LenSx Laser Cataract Surgery is putting the future in motion. Traditional cataract surgery is one of the most widely performed eye surgeries in the world. However, the current manual techniques are subject to inaccuracy and variability.

On the other hand, the LenSx® femtosecond laser features computer-controlled capabilities that enhance accuracy. Through this new technology, LenSx Cataract Surgery is customized to the patient’s ocular anatomy. Additionally, this procedure improves on three of the five critical steps of refractive surgery for cataract removal.

With LenSx Cataract Surgery, our Reno ophthalmologists continue to pioneer many techniques for the removal of cataracts in the area. Our Northern Nevada eye doctors carefully examine each patient to suggest the best possible procedure that meets their needs and improves their vision. Whether you need traditional intervention or laser-assisted cataract surgery, we can help



About LenSx Cataract Surgery

What is LenSx Laser Cataract Surgery?

Traditional cataract surgery involves a surgical blade to make the initial corneal incision needed to access and remove the cataracts. On the other hand, LenSx surgery involves a computer-controlled laser to perform this initial corneal incision. It also performs other steps usually performed manually. This new type of cataract removal procedure eliminates some inaccuracies and possible errors in steps performed manually.

Technological advantages of LenSx Laser Cataract Surgery

  • Customized solution – The 3D OCT scanning technology takes precise measurements of the eye and maps where the incisions are to be made. Every eye differs in size, depth, thickness, and curvature of its cornea. Due to this, this planning stage is critical to the success of the surgery. This level of customization is not possible with manual cataract surgery.
  • The nucleus of the damaged lens can be broken down into small enough fragments to aspirate with minimal wear and tear.
  • The laser makes micro-incisions used to access the cataract and for astigmatism correction.
  • Increased accuracy and precision – The computer creates a circular opening in the lens capsule. It makes the exact placement of the new intraocular lens incredibly precise.

Patient benefits

  • The computer can compensate for small movements made by the patient during the procedure.
  • The femtosecond laser incisions will reliably release less energy than other lasers. This prevents an excessive rise in temperature – thus protecting the endothelial cells within the eye.
  • Reduced surgical time.
  • Improve surgical accuracy.
  • Safer and more consistent outcomes.
