What is Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy involves the use of laser light to perform surgical procedures. For instance, our LenSx and WaveLight® systems for cataract surgery serve as effective tools that make manual procedures obsolete. Thanks to our laser devices, we can now address a slew of eye conditions with a degree of precision never before possible.
When is Laser Therapy Needed?
Certain conditions like cataracts can be treated using lasers. While traditional surgery is an option, laser treatments can offer a greater degree of success. Floaters, glaucoma, and macular degeneration are other issues that can be addressed using laser treatments. Glaucoma, in particular, should be diagnosed and treated early as this condition can lead to vision loss if not addressed.
What Do Treatments Involve?
Laser therapy differs based on the specific condition addressed. For instance, we use our LenSx system for the treatment of cataracts. Our Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) procedures can be effective for the treatment of glaucoma. SLTs effectively reduce intraocular pressure in adult patients with glaucoma.
We also use the WaveLight® FS200 and EX500 for LASIK surgery. These two FDA-approved lasers allow for exceptional precision during surgery, resulting in a better patient outcome.
