Associates in Eyecare is pleased to offer laser assisted cataract surgery for our patients using the Catalys Laser Platform. Key benefits include a state-of-the-art laser, advanced 3D imaging, sophisticated software and other unique features that deliver a precise, customized procedure with exceptional patient comfort.
Catalys enables surgeons to create a perfectly sized, shaped and centered circular incision to access, break up and remove the cataract. This precise and accurate incision helps your surgeon to place the artificial intraocular lens (IOL) in the exact intended position.
This procedure enables your surgeon to soften and remove the cataract easily and more gently. Using sophisticated laser pattern scanning technology, the surgeon can create grid-like patterns in the cataract to aid in break-up and removal.
