Cataracts, or clouded lenses, develop due to aging, certain medical conditions, or trauma. They can blur your vision and make daily activities like reading, working, and driving difficult or even dangerous. Removing a diseased lens and replacing it with a high-quality intraocular lens (IOL) during surgery may allow you to live a fuller life, with clear eyesight and improved confidence. Recent innovations in ocular surgery have made vision correction procedures safer and more precise than ever before. Our doctors offer femtosecond laser cataract surgery at our Bakersfield practice, allowing us to restore our patients' vision more safely and effectively than ever before.

Laser cataract surgery with a femtosecond laser offers patients a level of precision that is unmatched by manual eye surgery. Unlike manual cataract surgery, which is performed with microkeratome blades, laser cataract surgery applies a cool laser beam to cut and alter ocular tissue. The laser emits pulses in femtoseconds, which are incredibly small units of time. This speed reduces heat and improves patient comfort. The laser performs minimally invasive treatment, which natural reduces recovery time and allows tissue to heal more promptly.
