Robotic and Femto Laser Cataract Eye Surgery is an advanced procedure for cataract removal that uses a high-precision laser to perform several of the steps traditionally done by hand. This makes the procedure more accurate and allows for better outcomes. It also offers increased safety, less discomfort, and a quicker recovery time.
The Femto Laser is a specialized device that uses a tiny laser beam to break up the cataract and soften the lens before it is removed. This process is much more precise than traditional cataract surgery, which requires a manual incision. With Femto Laser Cataract Surgery, the laser breaks up the cataract within the eye and then a small probe is used to safely remove the pieces. This process greatly reduces the risk of complications and improves the accuracy of the surgery.
The Femto Laser Cataract Surgery also reduces the amount of time required for the procedure. A traditional cataract surgery can take up to two hours, while a Femto Laser Cataract Surgery may only take 15 minutes or less. This means you can get back to your life sooner, with less discomfort and a quicker recovery period.
In Femto/laser cataract surgery, an advanced machine Catalys replaces the use of a hand-held surgical instruments for the following steps in cataract surgery:
The corneal incision | The anterior capsulotomy | Lens and cataract fragmentation
CATALYS allows surgeons to create a customized treatment plan that matches the uniqueness of each eye.
Depending on the patient’s pre-operative vision and desired visual result, we may recommend a tailored treatment plan that could include creating ultra-precise laser incisions in the cornea and a specific clear lens type, such as a multi-focal lens. This tailored treatment may reduce a patient’s need for glasses or contacts after surgery.
Robotic cataract surgery begins with an eye exam to determine if the patient is a good candidate for the procedure. During the exam, the doctor will measure the eye and check for any existing conditions that would need to be addressed prior to surgery. Once the patient is approved for the procedure, the surgeon will begin by inserting a tiny camera into the eye using a small incision. This camera will provide the surgeon with a magnified view of the area being operated on, allowing for greater accuracy. Patients goes back happy after Robotic and Femto Laser Cataract Surgery.

ADVANTAGES OF FEMTO LASER CATARACT SURGERY
Femto laser-assisted cataract surgery has some perceived advantages over traditional cataract surgery. These include:
Precise incisions: With FEMTO LASER CATARACT SURGERY, a laser is used to make precise incisions in the eye, which are typically more accurate and predictable than manually created incisions.
Reduced ultrasound energy: The laser helps to fragment the cataract, reducing the amount of ultrasound energy needed to break it up further. This can reduce the risk of complications such as corneal burns and swelling.
Faster healing: With FEMTO LASER CATARACT SURGERY, the incisions are typically smaller and more precise, leading to faster healing and recovery times compared to traditional cataract surgery.
Less dependence on manual skills: FEMTO LASER CATARACT SURGERY is a more automated procedure, which means there is less dependence on the surgeon’s manual skills. This can lead to more consistent outcomes and reduce the risk of human error.
Predictable outcomes: With the help of sophisticated imaging and planning software, FEMTO LASER CATARACT SURGERY can provide more predictable and accurate outcomes, particularly in cases where the patient has complex and challenging cataracts or other eye conditions.
