NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.--(Feinerman Vision Center, one of the nation's foremost medical practices dedicated to vision correction, is now among a handful of vision centers offering LenSx® laser technology across the country—the first FDA approved laser assisted cataract surgery.)--
“I am excited to offer Laser Assisted Refractive Cataract surgery to my patients”
Medical Director and Founder of Feinerman Vision Center, Dr. Gregg Feinerman, to this date, has performed cataract surgeries manually requiring a blade to make a small incision. With this latest technology, LenSx® is the first femtosecond laser cleared for use by cataract surgeons bringing image-guided computer precision to refractive cataract surgery. The femtosecond laser does not use heat and performs the most intricate cuts in cataract surgery with more accuracy compared to the human hand.
“For more than ten years, Feinerman Vision Center has always been a leader in new technologies and innovative eye care solutions to ease and further my patients' comfort during cataract or LASIK surgeries,” states Dr. Gregg Feinerman. “After researching the LenSx® laser technology, it was a no brainer to bring this new era of a quick blade-free cataract surgeries to my patients within Southern California and beyond.”
In the U.S. and worldwide, cataract surgery is the most commonly performed outpatient corrective procedure and treatment is very safe. However, many patients are apprehensive about the manual use of a blade to make an incision for the cataracts. Using the cutting edge LenSx® technology, Dr. Gregg Feinerman’s patients will feel more at ease and safe due to these technological advancements:
- Precision: Each individual’s eyes are different and have different dimensions. LenSx® technology is built to provide a customized experience. It precisely measures the eye and makes its incisions with micron accuracy.
- Surgically Corrects Astigmatism: The LenSx® laser is FDA approved for astigmatic keratotomy, which doctors use to treat astigmatism. Thus, it surgically corrects astigmatism.
- Top of the line scanner: LenSx® is equipped with an optical coherence tomographer (OCT). It scans the eye and produces a three-dimensional image of different structures in the eye.
- Accuracy: The scanner can also work with a video microscope so the eye surgeon can accurately plan and program each laser incision custom tailored for each patient. This micron level of accuracy makes the LenSx® procedure more precise than possible with the human hand.
“I am excited to offer Laser Assisted Refractive Cataract surgery to my patients,” says Dr. Gregg Feinerman. “This exciting laser technology will probably become the standard of care for cataract surgery in the future.”
