Laser Cataract Surgery
Omni the Leader in Laser Cataract Surgery in Atlanta, Georgia
Bladeless laser refractive cataract surgery is now a reality, and in Atlanta it is available at Omni Eye Services of Atlanta. Lawrence Woodard, M.D. performed the first laser cataract surgery in the Atlanta Metro area on January 30, 2013 with the LenSx femtosecond laser. Since then, he has performed several thousand procedures.
Traditional cataract surgery is considered to be one of the safest and most successful procedures performed in medicine today. Now, a technological breakthrough with bladeless laser cataract surgery is available that has significantly improved the precision of several of the most critical steps in cataract surgery. With laser cataract surgery, the doctors at Omni Eye Services will customize your procedure to your eye’s unique characteristics, resulting in more predictable outcomes while potentially making cataract surgery even safer.
Bladeless Laser Cataract surgery is performed in our Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) located at our West Paces Office and only takes five to ten minutes. In addition to using the femtosecond laser to accomplish many of the surgical steps that were traditionally performed by hand, we use the best and latest innovations in cataract surgery, such as topical anesthesia with drops (eliminating the need for any kind of shot in the eye), sutureless small-incisions through the cornea, and foldable intraocular lenses.
The precise, reproducible steps performed by the laser mean better lens positioning, less trauma to the eye, and more predictable visual results which are especially important with Lifestyle Lenses.
