The Vision Care Center now offers a solution for laser assisted cataract surgery. Meet ReLACS.
Laser- Assisted Cataract Surgery
Traditional cataract surgery has always involved the use of a physical blade to create several small incisions during the procedure. With ReLACS™, these incisions are now made with a laser. This technology allows our surgeons to plan and perform cataract surgeries with laser precision.
With this advanced technology, surgeons experience more control and flexibility; plus, ReLACS™ features real-time diagnostic tools for an accurate visual of what’s going on inside the eye during the procedure.
When used in conjunction, ReLACS™ and one of the intraocular lenses offered at The Vision Care Center may give patients even more visual freedom after cataract surgery, helping maintain clear vision for decades.
At your cataract consultation, you will be educated on the traditional blade-based approach and the ReLACS™ laser-assisted approach to cataract surgery so that the best decision can be made for your situation and goals.
