Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery (ReLACS)
Advances in cataract surgery technology have made it possible to perform cataract surgery incisions, softening the lens and reducing astigmatism, using a femtosecond laser, rather than a hand-held blade. At the Eye Care Center of Northern Colorado, we use the laser approach to cataract surgery for patients to achieve outstanding cataract surgery results.
Prior to surgery, our doctors create a unique cataract surgery plan just for your eyes, using a sophisticated 3-D image of the eye to know the exact depth, width and location to make the incision.
Advantages of Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery
- More precise incisions
- Ability to reduce astigmatism
- Softens the cataract to reduce postoperative swelling and inflammation
Not all patients are good candidates for laser-assisted cataract surgery. The only way to find out which technique is right for you is by scheduling a cataract consultation.
