Dr. Iskander of San Antonio Eye Specialists is excited to bring the LENSAR ™ Laser System, a new technology used to safely remove cataracts and restore vision, to his San Antonio patients. Dr. Iskander is the first certified ophthalmologist in Texas to use the LENSAR™ femtosecond laser technology.
“We are very happy to bring LENSAR™ to our patients. I’ve been waiting for laser cataract (femtosecond) technology to progress for a number of years and now we are to the point that it has surpassed the precision and predictability of a surgeon with manual instruments, which should result in better outcomes for our patients,” says Dr. Iskander.
The LENSAR™ Laser System, allows eye surgeons to perform many of the necessary steps of cataract removal with the utilization of a Femtosecond laser versus a manual blade. This technology can add a greater amount of precision, safety and improved visual outcome to the entire cataract procedure.1
A cataract is the clouding of the eye’s natural lens. This causes vision loss due to the obstructed light passing through the eye onto the retina. It is a common eye condition that affects vision in older patients. By age 80, more than half of US citizens either have a cataract or have had cataract surgery. 2
Why LENSAR ™ Femtosecond Technology?:
The LENSAR ™ Laser System uses Femtosecond technology. This is the same technology that has been used for over a decade in LASIK laser vision correction. It helps surgeons take a more intelligent approach to cataract removal. With features such as Augmented Reality, surgeons can create more accurate incisions on the eye and reduce human error, which prior to LENSAR ™, were done manually using a blade. This breakthrough in technology may allow surgeons to further enhance visual outcomes, especially when associated with refractive cataract surgery, such as a premium IOL.
