Laser Assisted Catarct Surgery (LACS) is a new, advanced technology that pateints can now choose for thier surgery. Traditional manual surgery uses blades to make the incisions and other instruments to manually open the anterior aspect of the cataract (called a capsulotomy) and break up the cataract. Laser assisted cataract surgery relies on the femtosecond laser to make precise incisions, create corneal incisions to reduce astigmatism, provide exacting centration and shape for the capsulotomy and break up the cataract...all with laser precision and without blades.
