Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery:

  • For decades, cataract surgery, including the first incisions and the breakup and removal of the cataract, were performed by hand. Now, additionally, CNY Eye Physicians and Surgeons, offers the option of femtosecond laser as an adjunct to cataract surgery.
  • The femtosecond laser emits optical pulses in the realm of a femtosecond—an almost unimaginably short duration (one-millionth of one-billionth of a second). A femtosecond laser can be thought of as a ‘microscalpel,’ cutting and breaking up the cataract on a microscopic scale with an incredible level of precision.
