All-Laser Cataract Surgery? Boston Ophthalmologist Highlights the Advantages

Dr. Steven Nielsen of Nielsen Eye Center Discusses LenSx Femtosecond Laser Cataract Surgery, a Procedure That Does Not Require a Surgical Blade for Cataract Removal

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/26/14 -- Dr. Steven Nielsen, an eye doctor in Boston, typically recommends all-laser cataract surgery to his patients at Nielsen Eye Center. The practice recently added the LenSx® Femtosecond Laser to their collection of advanced eye care technologies to aid in the surgical process and provide very precise results.

The LenSx® was the first femtosecond laser cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for cataract surgery. It employs a computer-guided system to help Dr. Nielsen navigate the eye with incredible precision. In the traditional procedure, metal blades are used to make incisions into the eye, and Dr. Nielsen then manually breaks up the lens and removes it. With all-laser cataract surgery, he is able to create the incisions with a laser and then break up the lens to be removed. At this time, Dr. Nielsen says he is also able to create incisions to remove pre-existing astigmatism, also known as irregular curvature of the cornea.

With the new laser technology, Dr. Nielsen explains patients can benefit from highly advanced cataract surgery. He notes how each step of the procedure can be planned ahead of time and be fully customized to each patient. When it comes time for the surgery, Dr. Nielsen says he is able to perform the procedure exactly as programmed, while still having the ability to make adjustments, should they become necessary.

The team at Nielsen Eye Center says they strive to use the most advanced technology available to provide the best possible results. Dr. Nielsen notes that the LenSx® device is just the latest addition to their practice and describes it as "one more measure of our ability to offer the best to our patients."
