Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) September 10, 2012
Dr. Arthur Benjamin, a Los Angeles LASIK surgeon and medical director of the Benjamin Eye Institute, has been certified by Alcon Laboratories in the use of the revolutionary LenSX femtosecond laser cataract system. This system is the first of its kind to be approved by the FDA. Only 6 surgical centers in the U.S. and one in the greater Los Angeles area have the LenSX.
Since no two eyes are exactly the same, each eye must be carefully measured and mapped before the actual cataract surgery. Alcon’s LenSX laser is custom-tailored for a cataract surgical process. It utilizes a bladeless, computer-controlled laser and highly advanced technologies to capture an accurate, sharp and finely detailed images of the eyes. These images, together with related data and measurements, are used to accurately plan and perform a cataract surgery in accordance to the individual’s eye specification. The surgeon uses an innovative aiming system to deliver the laser pulses precisely on target areas of the eye.
The LenSX laser system should only be done by a certified eye care practitioner trained in the operation of the device. Dr. Arthur Benjamin is the first to offer LenSX laser cataract surgery in Los Angeles. He is one of California’s leading ophthalmologists and the first to perform the innovative Acrysof ReSTOR IOL procedure in L.A. This method is able to restore normal vision for cataract sufferers and presbyopic patients even without the use of reading glasses or prescription lenses. Dr. Benjamin is also a leader in multifocal lens implantation and has performed thousands of refractive surgeries for more than 16 years.
When it comes to refractive laser and cataract surgery, the Benjamin Eye Institute offers state-of-the-art technology for a successful surgical vision procedure. Apart from using advanced equipment, the eye center has an autonomous climate controlled laser suite to generate the right surgical environment for patients. It also offers Epi-LASIK procedure, a combination of LASIK and PRK. The bladeless Epi-LASIK is very similar to LASIK but the laser energy is instead applied to the surface of the eye rather than beneath a flap of corneal tissue. It is deemed as the safest laser vision correction procedure in the world.
