The LenSx laser has revolutionised the field of lens replacement surgery and is lauded by patients and medical professionals alike. Clinical evidence shows that patients who undergo laser lens replacement surgery report improved emotional, physical and cognitive wellbeing. So, don't let your dependence on glasses or issues with cataracts cloud your ability to enjoy life to the full, read on to see how LenSx can put the spring back in your step.
The technology you can trust
Luckily things have moved on since the times of manual lens replacement surgery when going under the knife was the only option. The LenSx femtosecond laser is the most widely used technology platform around the world and a clear market leader. It offers exceptional results for refractive, astigmatism and cataract corrective surgery. Here are just a few reasons why LenSx is a cut above the rest:
- Unparalleled precision, control and reproducibility
- Highly customised treatment tailored specifically to your needs
- Fast, gentle and less invasive surgery resulting in minimal eye trauma and discomfort
- Quicker recovery and reduced post-operative swelling
- Safe, predictable surgery and consistent outcomes
- Constantly evolving cutting-edge technology
How does LenSx laser surgery work?
The system 'docks' seamlessly with your eye enabling a high-resolution image of your eye to be generated onto a computer. This allows surgeons to plan with pinpoint accuracy where the laser should make an incision. Laser beams then make a few small, precise cuts, soften the lens replacement and break it into pieces. The surgeon then removes the lens replacement and introduces an intraocular lens (IOL).
What to expect after surgery with LenSx
You can look forward to improved vision within 24 hours of surgery and be back to your normal routine in one to two days. There might be a little discomfort, itching and photosensitivity as your eyes heal, but this should ease over the next couple of days. Antibiotic eye drops may be prescribed to prevent infection. Many patients enjoy vastly improved vision following refractive lens replacement surgery, allowing them to finally say goodbye to glasses.
Is LenSx surgery right for me?
Anyone who has lower quality vision wears glasses or contact lenses regularly or suffers from cataracts are good candidates for LenSx. However, issues such as corneal opacity, glaucoma, poor pupil dilation and previous corneal surgery may mean other surgical options are advisable.
