Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery, A New Era in Cataract Surgery.
Catalys™ Laser System
Now At Ophthalmic Consultants of the Capital Region
Cataract surgery is very successful in restoring vision. In fact, it is the most frequently performed surgery in the United States; more than 1.6 million cataract surgeries are done each year. For decades, cataract surgery, including the first incisions and the breakup and removal of the cataract, were performed by hand. Now, Dr. Allen Zieker can perform these steps with the Catalys™ laser system.
Ophthalmic Consultants of the Capital Region recently implemented this revolutionary technology. Catalys combines a femtosecond laser, 3D imaging, and the latest technology to produce a highly customized and precise cataract surgery experience.
For those who want the best possible vision, laser-assisted cataract surgery is a great option. Dr. Allen Zieker will create all incisions with the laser, which has more precision than a blade. Catalys’s advanced imaging system provides 3D images of your eye, enabling Dr. Allen Zieker to tailor a treatment plan just for you. A more accurate incision, capsulotomy and astigmatic correction will help you rely less on glasses after cataract surgery.
If you have been diagnosed with cataracts, laser-assisted cataract may be a great option for you. At your appointment, Dr. Allen Zieker will discuss your options in detail. Call today to schedule an appointment 518-274-3123.
