Laser Cataract Surgery
Refractive Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery (ReLACS)
At Coastal Vision, we use only the latest surgical technologies to give all our patients the very best outcomes. Having introduced the all-laser, bladeless LASIK technique, Coastal Vision’s Dr. Dan B. Tran was the first surgeon in California to utilize the bladeless LenSx® femtosecond laser technology to perform refractive cataract surgery. The LenSx laser uses a computer-guided laser to make incisions, instead of a blade. This allows each cataract surgery to be more precise and more customizable than traditional methods, achieving highly accurate and predictable results.
Using the LenSx technology, Coastal Vision can now use a femtosecond laser to complete a number of the stages in cataract surgery that were previously performed by hand. Laser technology brings a level of safety and accuracy to cataract surgery that has never been realized before.
Coastal Vision was also the first center in Southern California to use the ORA® System with VerifEye™ for cataract surgery. It used to be that your surgeon needed to wait weeks after performing surgery to determine your vision results. Now, using the ORA System with VerifEye during the procedure, your surgeon can measure your outcome during surgery and make any adjustments necessary. Once the cloudy lens is removed, the ORA System guides the use of these advanced technologies and allows your surgeon to ensure the new IOL is properly selected and placed, giving you a better visual outcome.
It used to be that a surgeon needed to wait weeks after performing surgery to determine your vision results. Thanks to the ORA System®, this is no longer the case. Now, during the procedure, your surgeon can take measurements of your eye. ORA measurements are taken after the clouded cataract is removed, when the surgeon has a clear view, allowing the procedure to be tailored to your individual eye, refining your visual outcome.
LENSAR® Laser System
With the introduction of the LENSAR® Laser System, laser cataract surgery has become a reality, and your surgeon can now remove your cataract in a more advanced way. Laser cataract surgery is made even more precise by Augmented Reality, a unique imaging system that provides your surgeon with a sophisticated 3-D view your eye to help plan and treat your cataract. With this advanced technology, your surgeon can offer you a better, more precise cataract removal procedure that is customized to your eye’s own unique size and shape.
- A unique, high-resolution, 3-D view of your eye that allows your surgeon to tailor your treatment, which can improve visual outcomes.
- The most advanced technology available, which may reduce the time it takes to remove your cataracts.
- A system designed with comfort in mind, so you can relax, knowing the latest technology available is being used to treat one of your most valuable senses- your sight.
With the LenSx® Laser System, surgeons can monitor the entire anterior segment throughout the procedure, using:
- A high-resolution video microscope for real-time imaging
- A fully integrated, high-definition Optical Coherence Tomographer (OCT) for a crisp, three- dimensional view
