Poughkeepsie, NY (PRWEB) June 07, 2012
Laser Cataract Surgery of New York, L.L.C. is pleased to announce that it will commence operations at the Dutchess Ambulatory Surgical Center, L.L.C. in Poughkeepsie, New York. Cataract surgery is a technically complex type of eye surgery requiring tremendous surgical skill for a number of steps that are currently performed manually. Recently researchers have worked with laser physicists, engineers and manufacturers to apply the femtosecond laser to cataract surgery. The potential advantage of using the femtosecond laser to assist in cataract surgery and lens implants is that it allows the consolidation and conversion of the many skill intensive steps of cataract removal into a more predictable procedure that benefits from enhanced laser created surgeon controlled precision resulting in further improved clinical results.
Laser Cataract Surgery of New York, L.L.C. has installed the Alcon® LensSx® Femtosecond Laser in a specially designed suite to assist cataract surgeons in providing laser cataract surgery and lens implants for patients from throughout the Hudson Valley at the Dutchess Ambulatory Surgical Center, L.L.C, 23 Davis Avenue Poughkeepsie, N.Y. 12603-a comfortable, close to home surgery center fully accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) and licensed by the State of New York and Medicare.
From a surgical perspective, cataract surgeons believe that incorporation of the femtosecond laser into the cataract surgery and lens implant procedure will be useful for:
- Creating "perfect" incisions in terms of size and architecture, which is important in order to have the incision seal properly without the use of stitches and to prevent infection.
- Creating a perfectly centered and sized "capsulotomy", which is the "opening" prepared in the front of the crystalline lens through which the cloudy lens material is removed.
- Liquefying, softening or "chopping" the crystalline lens, in order to allow the cloudy material to be removed.
- Creating the possibility of precise corneal incisions, such as might be performed with Limbal Relaxing Incisions (LRI), to correct pre-existing astigmatism.
