While all human eyes share the same basic anatomical structure, every eye is just a bit different in terms of size, depth of the space behind the cornea, curvature of the cornea, exact position of the lens within the eye and other key features. This is why every eye must be mapped prior to cataract surgery. While these measurements have been routinely performed prior to surgery, the LenSx® laser uses a range of highly advanced technologies, including integrated Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) to capture incredibly precise, high-resolution images of your eyes in real time during surgery. These images and the measurement data they provide are then used to plan and perform surgery to exacting specifications not previously attainable with traditional surgery.

The incredibly advanced LenSx® laser is designed specifically for performing the most delicate parts of cataract surgery. LenSx® uses a laser source to produce femtosecond laser pulses; an aiming system to localize specific targets in the eye; an optical delivery system to precisely deliver laser pulses to desired targets in the eye; and a computer controller to perform clinical procedures.
