Eye Surgeons Begin Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery in Hudson Valley New York

Eye Surgeons working with Laser Cataract Surgery of New York, L.L.C. have commenced performing bladeless laser cataract surgery and lens implants for patients from throughout the Hudson Valley at the Dutchess Ambulatory Surgical Center.

July 9, 2012 (FPRC) -- Satish Modi, M.D., F.R.C.S. (C) of Seeta Eye Centers commented on his initial experience with the Alcon® LensSx® Femtosecond for bladeless cataract surgery. “I have been doing cataract surgery for 30 years now and can honestly say that I am a good cataract surgeon-but as any surgeon will tell you, we humans are not ‘on’ EVERY time we operate-the femtosecond laser IS, every time.”

The integration of the femtosecond laser to assist in cataract surgery and lens implants offers the promise of allowing the refinement of the many skill intensive steps of cataract removal into a more predictable procedure that benefits from enhanced laser created, surgeon controlled precision resulting in further improved clinical results.

Dr. Modi further noted, “The most important step in a cataract operation is the creation of a capsulorehexis, the circular opening made in the front of the cloudy lens-this controls the safety of the surgery. It also influences the position of the replacement intraocular lens, resulting in wonderful vision, or allowing less than great vision, if done even slightly off axis or improperly. The femtosecond laser creates an exquisite round and precise opening, a thousand times out of a thousand, beyond the capacity of ANY human being to replicate.”

“We are thrilled that among our group of cataract surgeons we are able to provide what is truly a considerable advance in the safety, precision and reproducibility of cataract surgery and lens implants for patients throughout the Hudson Valley region of New York,” remarked Dr. Fox.
