In my 40 years performing cataract surgery, I've never seen anything change the game quite like CATALYS. It streamlines and customizes everything. We've been successfully using it in Houston, and I'm very excited to bring this powerful technology to our Austin patients.

Cataract surgery using the CATALYS is different from any other laser cataract surgery. The CATALYS has constantly higher precision and accuracy compared to rival laser systems [1] and it delivers a completely tailored, gentle procedure. Actually, more cataract patients prefer it. [2]

Tailored and gentle means a faster, more accurate cataract surgery. The CATALYS laser was designed keeping in mind the patient, which is precisely like the Mann Eye Institute. Their philosophy is that people are unique and the method to their vision care should also be, therefore no one-size-fits-all procedures here.

At Mann Eye Institute, the comfort of the patient and great results are their main priorities.
