Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery in Pensacola
What is a Cataract?
A cataract is cloudiness that develops in the clear lens of the eye, and reduces the amount of light that enters the eye causing glare, blurred and distorted vision. Cataracts develop slowly and may take a number of years before affecting one’s vision. Most cataracts are age related, but other factors that can contribute to a cataract are eye injures, radiation, and younger patients with diabetes.
During the early stages, cataracts may have little effect on your vision. Depending on the severity of the cataract, you may experience these symptoms:
- Cloudy Vision
- Double or blurry vision
- Glare and sensitivity to bright lights
- Colors are faded
- Difficulty reading due to reduced black-white contrast
- Difficulty driving at night
During a cataract evaluation, Dr. Concool will be able to see your cataract. If you are a candidate for Cataract surgery, you will go through a series of preoperative testing and be scheduled a personal consult with Dr. Concool, to go over treatment and lens options.
Laser Cataract Surgery
Dr. Concool was among the very first eye surgeons in the Nation to perform refractive laser surgery, which eventually has evolved into Bladeless Cataract surgery using femtosecond lasers. He brought the latest Laser Cataract surgery technology to the Pensacola area.
Laser-assisted Cataract surgery has proven to be more reproducible then traditional cataract surgery. The LenSx laser system takes real-time HD video of your eye to help the surgeon automate and execute the challenging steps of cataract surgery. The laser is designed to create pristine incisions and perform softer fragmentation, which helps the surgeon precisely remove the cataract while limiting stress on the eye.
Premium Lens Options
These are single focused lenses that are designed for the best quality of vision. Blended vision targets (the dominant eye is focused at distance and the non-dominant eye is focused at near/intermediate) can be used to accomplish a wide range of vision goals. These lenses give the best quality of night vision. They also work very well for patients who are already used to blended vision with contact lenses or with prior corneal refractive surgery like CK, LASIK, PRK or RK.
