Learn all about Cataracts

Benjamin Eye Care located downtown LaGrange, IL. can provide you with complete cataract care. A cataract is a painless, cloudy area in the lens of the eye that blocks the passage of light to the retina. Cataracts are generally caused by aging and exposure to sunlight, but can also be a result of eye injuries, eye disease or certain medications. The loss of vision from a cataract often happens slowly so you may not even notice that the cataract has caused vision problems. Give us a call and schedule an appointment with Dr. Benjamin, so he can accurately diagnose your cataract and then give you a detailed analysis of your options & treatments.

Cataract Diagnosis

Diagnosing cataracts begins during a comprehensive clinical eye exam. During the exam, Dr. Benjamin is perceptive to the contributing factors of cataracts, including the patients’ symptoms and vision complaints. Regularly scheduled eye exams are extremely important in diagnosing and successfully treating cataracts.

If you have been diagnosed with cataracts or are experiencing symptoms of cataracts, we have great news for you! An amazing new breakthrough in cataract procedure, with the LenSx Laser System.  With the LenSx Laser System, you will receive the following benefits:

  1. More precise, reproducible and reliable capsulotomies
  2. More accurate, more efficient, and less damaging self-sealing cataract incision in terms of architecture, size and geometry
  3. Less variability of anterior chamber depth with more stable post-op refraction

The adoption of the LenSx Laser System represents a significant advancement in the field of ophthalmology, providing enhanced outcomes, safety, and efficiency in eye surgeries.  The LenSx Laser System is an advanced technology used primarily in cataract surgery, offering a range of benefits for both the surgeon and the patient. Here are some key advantages:

Precision & Accuracy: The LenSx Laser System provides highly precise and accurate incisions, thanks to its advanced imaging and laser technology. This level of precision is difficult to achieve with traditional manual techniques.

Customization: The system allows surgeons to customize the procedure for each patient’s specific anatomy, leading to better outcomes. It can create tailored incisions and assist in the accurate positioning of the intraocular lens.

Reduced Energy Use: Compared to traditional methods, the LenSx Laser can reduce the amount of energy used within the eye. This minimizes the risk of thermal damage to the eye tissues, which can lead to faster recovery.

Enhanced Safety: The precision of the LenSx Laser System reduces the risk of complications during and after cataract surgery. Its ability to make precise, predictable incisions can lead to reduced inflammation and a lower risk of infection.

Faster Recovery: Patients often experience a quicker recovery period due to the minimally invasive nature of the laser-assisted surgery. The precise incisions usually heal faster than those made by traditional surgical methods.

Improved Visual Outcomes: The accuracy and precision of the LenSx Laser System can lead to better visual outcomes for patients. It helps in the effective correction of vision, potentially reducing the dependence on glasses or contact lenses post-surgery.

Versatility: Besides cataract surgery, the LenSx Laser System can also be used for creating corneal flaps in LASIK procedures and for other anterior segment surgeries. This versatility makes it a valuable tool in ophthalmology.

Patient Comfort: The procedure is generally more comfortable for patients, with less pressure and discomfort during surgery. This can lead to an improved patient experience and satisfaction.

Efficiency: The LenSx Laser can potentially shorten the duration of the surgery and improve the efficiency of the surgical process, benefiting both the surgical team and the patient.

The LenSx Laser System is a technologically advanced, femtosecond laser surgical device designed for use in ophthalmology, particularly in cataract surgery and corneal surgery. This system represents a significant shift from traditional manual techniques to a more precise, reliable, and customizable method of performing eye surgeries.   Since its introduction, the LenSx Laser System has been widely adopted by ophthalmic surgeons worldwide. Its use signifies a move towards minimally invasive, laser-assisted procedures in the field of eye surgery, offering an advanced alternative to traditional surgical techniques.
