In August 2010, the U.S. developed and FDA approved, LenSx laser system was the lynchpin of a revolution in cataract surgery. It served as an impetus for the development of other new technologies, software, formulas, approaches, and techniques. Femtosecond laser technology has been used for other eye surgeries since 2001. Dr. Rosanova uses its image-guided control and unmatched precision to decrease the amount of collateral (ultrasound and fluidic) damage within the eye, to shorten, standardize and optimize the surgical procedure. With unprecedented accuracy and predictability, without a knife, with no pain while watching a kaleidoscope of colors, in a matter of 30-40 seconds, extremely precise incisions are made, the cataract is opened and sliced into 30-40 pieces for easier removal and low levels of astigmatism are corrected. In a fraction of the time it would take by hand in the operating room, this all happens just before entering the operating room.
Like a Stradivarius Violin or a Steinway Concert Grand Piano, the benefit of this technology varies by the artist performing with it. The laser is remarkable, but the laser alone will not produce the results you desire.
The maximum benefit of this remarkable laser is only realized by continuously mastering and integrating the constant wave of new technology, diagnostic instruments, the latest formulas, algorithms, image-guided systems, and techniques. For our patients, Dr. Rosanova’s exceptional experience and unique orchestration of all of this is what consistently produces the optimal result that you want.Take Cataract Self-Test Learn More
“I feel very fortunate to have this new procedure available to me when I needed it and to have a surgeon who was skilled and well versed in this new innovative surgery….I can’t thank you enough for giving me the best eyesight I have ever had, without wearing corrective lenses or glasses. I wouldn’t’ hesitate to recommend you to any of my friends or member of my family…”
“Because of my active lifestyle, heavy computer use and desire to drive with no restrictions, I opted for the full-range-of-vision lenses. Yes the procedure is expensive (and not covered by insurance). However, I believe the state-of-the-art procedure that Dr Rosanova uses with such skill is an ideal solution for someone whose daily routine included intensive visual work.”
