The Joseph & Swan Eye Center can provide you with a gentle, accurate and customized treatment for Cataract removal using the Catalys Precision Laser System. Laser assisted Cataract Surgery is for patients who want to utilize the most up to date technology available and would like to minimize the need for glasses or contact lenses afterward. The Catalys Laser technology uses a customized 3-D surgical platform which allows your surgeon to visualize, create and perform a tailored treatment plan that is uniquely customized for your eye. This type of surgery adds a greater amount of precision and improved visual outcome to the procedure.
In addition to the laser we also offer premium lenses to be used in conjunction with the Catalys Laser. These will lessen your dependence on glasses and contacts after surgery. One option is the Toric Lens. This lens is used to correct corneal astigmatism (a focusing error in the eye where near and far objects appear blurry) and to improve distance vision in adult patients. Another option is the Symfony or Symfony Toric Lens. The Symfony Lens is designed to give an extended range of vision, meaning Distance, intermediate and near. The Symfony Toric Lens not only gives an extended range of vision but corrects astigmatism at the same time.
