A surgery is the only treatment for cataract. The cloudy natural lens of the patient is removed and replaced with a clear artificial lens implant which will restore fully the patient’s vision. This must be done in a safe, painless and accurate manner.
In traditional cataract surgery, the surgeon uses hand-held metal instruments to create the incisions, access the cataract, and break up the cataract into smaller pieces which can be vacuumed out through a procedure called phacoemulsification. Even in the hands of the most experienced eye surgeon, sometimes these steps can be challenging.
However, at Shinagawa, we offer Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery (Premium Cataract Surgery) which uses the CATALYS Laser Precision System.
The CATALYS has several advantages over Traditional Cataract Surgery:
- Accurate incision placement for a better outcome
- Precision laser technology
- Safer access to the cataract via pre-cut opening
- Laser softens the cataract, making the removal more efficient and simpler
- The laser can also address the small amount of astigmatism
- Customized treatment with 3D imaging (enables the Surgeon to create a precise treatment plan uniquely tailored for the eye/s)
- A gentle approach to surgery (with very little to no discomfort at all)
- Using less energy, it allows a much faster recovery and restores vision in no time
The CATALYS Laser Precision System allows for safer, efficient, highly reproducible cataract surgery which leads to better visual outcomes.
The expertise of our experienced surgeons along with the power of the CATALYS have already satisfied patients and enabled them to regain a bright vision.
