Depending on the type of procedure you choose, a blade may be used. There is however a better advanced laser technology option.
If you choose to do Blade Free Laser Cataract Surgery, a femtosecond laser will be used to perform the incisions. With conventional cataract surgery, incisions are made using a traditional blade.
Carlin Vision is one of a few practices in the Atlanta area offering this breakthrough procedure. With the blade free laser, cataract surgery is more precise and accurate while increasing safety. With blade free laser cataract surgery, surgeons are able to plan and perform surgery to exacting, individualized specifications with more effective removal. The laser pre-softens the cataract allowing removal using less ultrasonic energy making it gentler on the corner which allows for faster healing time. Any pre-existing astigmatism is corrected with the laser.
