LensAR Laser System Employed in First Laser Cataract Surgeries

Laser surgery is preferred by ophthalmologists all over the world to safely and precisely remove dense nuclear cataract formation in the eye. LensAR is a pioneer in offering laser systems and 3D imaging technology that is used in performing cataract surgery.

The company has created a revolution in the surgical arena with the introduction of LensAR Laser System that is specifically designed for performing safe and accurate cataract surgery.

The eminent surgeons, David W. Shoemaker, M.D. of Sarasota, Florida, and Kerry K. Assil, M.D. of Beverly Hills, California, have made use of the LensAR Laser System in removing their patients’ cataracts and in correcting intraocular lenses (IOLs) to correct the vision of their patients. Both the surgeons are pleased and satisfied with the performance of the LensAR system that has enabled them to perform laser surgery with ease and precision. The operation procedure took them just three minutes and the patients were pleased with the fast and the painless operation procedure.

LensAR features high-resolution 3D measurement technology and beam guided delivery that helps in imaging and analyzing the anatomy of the individual patient’s eye irrespective of the cataract grade. The 3D technology enables the surgeons to have a clear view of the patient’s eye from the upper surface of cornea to the lower part of capsule and helps them position the IOL accurately. The phacofragmentation technique associated with the system helps in the easy removal of cataracts of any kind and reduces the use of ultrasound energy.

The company has received 510 (k) clearance from the FDA for the use of the novel system in the cataract surgery. Mr. Nick Curtis, LensAR’s Chief Executive Officer is immensely pleased with the FDA clearance and the surgeons’ recognition of the advantages of LensAR over other imaging systems. He assures that LensAR Laser System will be the right platform and mostly preferred by surgeons in future cataract surgeries.
