Providing patients with safe, comfortable, and effective treatment is extremely important to us at Nevada Eye Consultants. In order to deliver high-quality results to each of our patients, we seek to use only the most advanced technology at our practice.
Below, you can learn more about the innovative technology used in our cataract surgery procedures. If you would like additional information, or are interested in scheduling a consultation with one of our surgeons, please contact us.
LenSx® Femtosecond Laser System
While traditional cataract surgery uses a blade for incisions, the LenSx® femtosecond laser provides our surgeons with the ability to perform cataract surgery without the use of a blade. The LenSx® laser can also be used for limbal relaxing incisions (LRIs) during Custom Cataract Surgery. This all-laser approach has proven to produce significantly higher levels of precision when compared to traditional methods. The LenSx® system also enables our surgeons to gather a detailed, high-resolution image of the patient’s eye prior to surgery — when combined with the usual measurements taken for cataract surgery, this technology can further improve surgical outcomes.
ORA™ (Optiwave Refractive Analysis) System
Prior to cataract surgery, measurements of your eye are taken in order to select the appropriate IOL. However, in the past, the accuracy of these measurements involved a margin of error that could sometimes require revision surgery to exchange the IOL (intraocular lens). Thankfully, through the use of the ORA™ (Optiwave Refractive Analysis) intraoperative aberrometry system, our surgeons are able to take precise measurements through real-time analysis during surgery. This advancement helps to significantly improve the level of accuracy, and allows us to provide our patients with the best possible outcomes.
RxSight® Light Delivery Device (LDD)
The RxSight™ Light Adjustable Lens and Light Delivery Device (LDD) system allows our surgeons to work with you after cataract surgery to help you achieve your best possible vision. This is a revolutionary advancement in cataract treatment, due to the unpredictable nature of how the eye heals after cataract surgery. To optimize your eyesight following cataract surgery and IOL placement, your eye doctor can perform a series of treatments with the LDD technology, which non-invasively sends UV light to your Light Adjustable Lens to further improve your vision. Patients typically benefit from three to five light treatments, each lasting about 90 seconds.
