Laser Cataract Surgery

CATALYS® Precision Laser System

In traditional cataract surgery, your ECVA surgeon uses a hand-held metal or diamond blade to create an incision in the area where the sclera (the white of the eye) meets the cornea (clear area on top of the eye). Once opened, the surgeon uses special instruments to break up and then gently remove the cataract, which is located right behind the pupil. Next an intraocular lens (IOL) is inserted and implanted, to replace the cloudy natural lens.

Using the CATALYS Precision Laser System, your surgeon performs many of the steps of cataract surgery using a laser rather than using the traditional hand-held instruments. Cataract laser surgery provides a more comfortable, gentle, accurate, and highly customized treatment allowing little or no discomfort and a more rapid visual recovery.

Intraocular Lens

Once the cataract is removed, a replacement lens, called an intraocular lens or IOL, is placed in the eye. The laser can be used to create precise incisions used in lens implantation.
