What is LenSx?
LenSx Femtosecond LaserThe LenSx laser is an FDA-approved femtosecond laser that allows Dr. Burns to customize each bladeless Cataract Surgery Procedure and deliver improved vision correction results with maximum control and micron-level laser precision not attainable with other surgical methods.
There are no eyes like yours and there is no cataract procedure like customized Cataract Surgery for your eyes. The LenSx laser features revolutionary 3D technology, allowing Dr. Burns to visualize, customize and accurately perform the most challenging steps of Cataract Surgery, thereby increasing the accuracy and optimizing the alignment of corneal incisions and capsulotomy. By adding computer control to key steps of Cataract Surgery, the Lensx Laser ensures a higher level of precision when creating surgical incisions. The Lensx laser is unquestionably the most technologically advanced option for cataract patients.
The benefits associated with the LenSx laser include:
Once Dr. Burns has removed the Cataractous Lens during Cataract Surgery, he carefully inserts an Intraocular Lens Implant (IOL) to correct the patient’s vision. Now, with the Optiwave Refractive Analysis (ORA) System, Dr. Burns is able to calculate the power of IOLs during cataract surgery to provide patients with highly precise vision correction results and reduce the risk of postoperative complications.
The ORA System uses new Optiwave® technology to optimize intraoperative wavefront analysis and guide Dr. Burns as he selects the proper power of standard, premium, or Toric IOLs to fit each patient’s unique vision needs.
The technological improvements in the latest ORA System utilized by Dr. Burns are the result of almost 20,000 Cataract Surgeries using WaveTec technology. The ORA System has been clinically proven to improve intraoperative accuracy, lessening the need for costly postoperative enhancements.
