Dr Sachdev eye hospital is proud to introduce the first laser assisted cataract surgery in South Gujarat. We now have the LenSx laser from Alcon(a Novartis company). It uses a medical grade laser to carry out the more difficult and high-risk steps of cataract surgery. Most importantly, it breaks up and softens the cataract in the eye even before we begin the surgery. The same laser then makes the required blade-free cuts in the eye with unprecedented precision. The softened cataract is then removed by phacoemulsification (the conventional cataract surgery) and the lens is inserted into the eye.
The LenSx adds computer control to key steps of cataract surgery-which ensures the highest precision surgical incisions. Its unique software control system analyses live high-resolution OCT images of your eye, which helps the surgeon design a customized procedure; and then, visualizes and performs the procedure on command from the surgeon!The LenSx is a device approved by the FDA of USA.
LenSx is a breakthrough innovation using a laser for unprecedented safe, predictable and precise blade free cataract surgery.
The Femto laser is so named because each pulse of the laser fires for one femto second (one femto is 1/1000000000000000). The same laser is also used in blade-free femto lasik surgery.
