Is cataract surgery done by laser now?

Femto Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery (FLACS) The Ziemer Z8 laser can now be used to complete some of the critical steps of cataract and lens replacement surgery with repeatable accuracy down to 1/1000th mm. This includes the entry incisions, capsulorhexis and softening or fragmenting the nucleus.

Can cataract be cured with laser?

The laser may be useful when correcting for astigmatism, aligning an astigmatism-correcting intraocular lens, or softening a dense cataract. During laser-assisted cataract surgery, your doctor typically uses the laser to make all incisions and to soften the cataract for removal by ultrasound (phacoemulsification).

  • Does LASIK eye surgery correct astigmatism?

    Yes, LASIK can fix astigmatism. Laser eye surgery can correct up to approximately 6.00 D of astigmatism.
