Emilio M. Justo, M.D., Founder and Medical Director of the Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center, now uses the LenSx® Femtosecond Laser to perform cataract surgery.

LenSx® Femtosecond Laser Refractive Cataract Surgery

Dr. Emilio M. Justo’s practice, Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center, has always tried to stay at the forefront of advances in medical technology. By using the latest vision correction and laser aesthetics systems available and learning the latest techniques, Dr. Justo and his team have been able to provide patients with exceptional vision quality, eye health, and cosmetic skin care results.

One of the latest advances in eye care technology that Dr. Justo is most pleased about is the LenSx® Laser, a state-of-the-art means of performing cataract surgery using femtosecond laser technology.

About the LensSx® Laser

The LenSx® Laser is an FDA-approved laser eye surgery system developed by ALCON®. It eliminates the need for using scalpels and physical instruments to perform the majority of cataract surgery, including the most important and critical steps of the procedure.

How the LensSx® Laser Works

The LenSx® Laser is completely computer controlled and guided, carefully assessing and analyzing the patient's eye through three-dimensional video imaging known as Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT). The level of accuracy of the LenSx® Laser is astounding, as it allows for completely customized cataract surgery, carefully considering the best possible and most efficient means of performing the procedure.

The Benefits of the LensSx® Laser

The benefits of the LenSx® Laser are plentiful:

  • Reduced chance of human error - Because the LenSx® Laser is completely computer-guided, there is very little chance of surgical mistakes as a result of surgeon error.
  • Completely customized cataract surgery - The LenSx® Laser will take into account the size, shape, thickness, and depth of the various parts of the eye in order to completely customize the incisions and surgical procedure to the patient's anatomy. This means improved results with far greater specificity and reproducibility.
  • Greater precision and efficiency during surgery - Using the LenSx® Laser allows for far greater control and accuracy than what could be achieved using physical surgical tools and traditional surgery techniques.
  • Improved safety for the patient - The greatest benefit to the patient is that the LenSx® Laser makes cataract surgery far safer than it has been in the past.

A Continued Commitment to Excellence in Eye Care

As eye care technology continues to evolve, Dr. Justo keeps the practice up to date by using new state-of-the-art technologies. He knows that these new systems have so many benefits and major advantages for patients, and his goal at the Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center is to provide the highest level of eye care and eye surgery in the most precise, reproducible, and safe manner possible to each of his valued patients.

Dr. Justo hopes to share further updates on new eye care and aesthetic enhancement technology being added to the practice in the future. It's important that patients understand how Dr. Justo can best help them through the latest vision correction and skin care technology.
