CORAL SPRINGS, FL (PRWEB) May 12, 2014
Coral Springs Surgical Center, in partnership with area surgeons, now offers laser-assisted cataract surgery, a bladeless, image-guided femtosecond laser procedure customized to each patient’s unique vision needs.
Laser-assisted cataract surgery at Coral Springs Surgical Center begins with a highly accurate 3-D imaging of the patient’s eye precise to the nearest micron, or one-thousandth of a millimeter. Surgeons use the data to prepare a personalized vision restoration plan.
Traditional cataract surgery is one of the safest and most successful procedures performed in medicine today. The natural lens clouded by the cataract is removed and replaced with a new clear lens.
Laser-assisted cataract surgery is a minimally invasive, outpatient procedure that takes cataract surgery to a new level of accuracy and allows simultaneous correction of astigmatism, if required. With the surgeon overseeing, the LenSx image-guided femtosecond laser makes incisions. Laser precision offers the best possible vision for the patient. Incisions are self-sealing, requiring no sutures. Most patients return to normal activity the following day.
“With its unprecedented accuracy, laser-assisted cataract surgery offers patients the best possible chance of independence from glasses,” says Hassan Tavakkoli, D.O., Ph.D. of Coral Springs Surgical Center. “The procedure itself is usually complete in a matter of minutes, returning the patient to their daily life with clear vision.”
The Coral Springs Surgical Center is dedicated to a broad range of outpatient surgery, providing compassionate personalized care to each patient. Some of the most qualified and highly trained surgeons in South Florida chose to do their surgeries here. This center is jointly owned by local surgeons and AMSURG, the largest cataract surgery provider in the United States.
