Cataract surgery is the only treatment option for patients with cataracts, i.e., cloudy or hazy vision due to protein formations on the eye lens. Cataract surgery involves removing cataracts and replacing the lens with intraocular lens implants. This must be done with the utmost precision to ensure optimal results and restore clear and sharp vision. At West Coast Eye Institute, we perform cutting-edge femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) to ensure consistent results without complications or downtime.
Consistent and predictable results with FLACS
The primary benefit of femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) is that the incisions in the cornea are highly controlled and precise. Minimal mechanical variability ensures consistent results without harsh side effects or complications.
Remove the possibility of human error with FLACS
Femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) is performed using a laser-guided computer system, involving minimal human intervention. This leads to the highest levels of precision possible, negating the possibility of human error or inaccuracies. The FLACS procedure also removes the risk of damage to surrounding tissues.
How do I know if I have cataracts?
The lenses in your eyes should be completely transparent and clear because they allow light to pass into your eyeball. Cataracts are protein formations on the lenses that make them look cloudy, leading to hazy or blurry vision. This makes it seem like you’re looking through a cloudy window or foggy window.
The following are the primary signs of cataracts:
- Hazy vision
- Blurry vision
- Halos around lights
- Poor night vision
- Poor vision around bright lights
- Yellowish tint in your vision
