Kelly Eye Center goes beyond traditional cataract surgery methods and is proud to offer the latest, most innovative eye surgery technique — laser cataract surgery. By utilizing bladeless laser technology, Dr. Kelly provides a custom-tailored solution for effective cataract removal in the Raleigh-Durham area.
Kelly Eye Center is the first eye center in the Raleigh-Durham area to offer laser cataract surgery. This advanced laser technology provides our patients with the safest, most gentle cataract surgery method available today. A laser cataract surgery includes many of the same steps as manual surgical methods, including: primary and secondary incisions, capsulorhexis, lens fragmentation and astigmatism correction. However, the near perfect circular incision that is possible with laser surgery helps with better lens positioning.
Our unique LenSx® Laser utilizes integrated optical coherence tomography (OCT) and related software to capture and analyze precise, high-resolution images of your eyes, providing your surgeon with accurate, real-time visuals throughout the laser cataract surgery procedure.
Dr. Kelly uses Femtosecond laser technology during cataract surgery to treat astigmatism. By using the laser’s computer guided imaging, Dr. Kelly can safely reduce a patient’s corneal astigmatism. With exacting precision, the laser creates small incisions to smooth out the shape of the cornea. For patients who have more severe astigmatism or are not candidates for laser, Dr. Kelly also recommends Toric IOL’s to correct astigmatism. These lenses are used in place of a standard IOL. In some cases, both the Toric IOL and Femtosecond laser technology can be used together.
At Kelly Eye Center, we believe that having a voice in your surgical treatment, along with a choice in the type of IOL you receive can help you achieve your best personal vision.
Blade-free laser cataract surgery is truly at the forefront of surgical innovation, delivering unmatched precision and accuracy for effective results. Contact Kelly Eye Center today to find out how you can take advantage of all the benefits of blade-free laser technology.
