Robotic Cataract Surgery / FLACS
The process of cataract formation begins with the accumulation of protein clumps in the lens. This film becomes increasingly thick and white, blocking light from reaching the retina. Here we suggest robotic cataract surgery that shares better outcomes with quicker recovery.
Robotic cataract surgery or Femto Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery (FLACS) is a surgical procedure that uses a robot instead of a human surgeon to perform eye surgery.
Femtosecond Laser technology is an advanced technology for cataract surgery worldwide. It has significantly eliminated manual procedures of traditional cataract surgery. Take advantage of Robotic Femtosecond laser, the world’s leading laser-automated technology for cataract eye surgery.
What is robotic cataract surgery Or FLACS?
Robotic cataract surgery is a type of surgery that uses robots to operate. The robot helps doctors remove cataracts by using tiny surgical instruments to break up and remove the clouded lens inside the eye. This procedure is often painless and can be done quickly, making it an excellent choice for people afraid of needles or surgeries.
Laser surgery is quick and precise, with only a 30-40 second wait time. After the laser opens the cataract capsule, it fragments the lens and cuts through the cornea using precise incisions. This method is more accurate than a manual blade incision, often resulting in incorrectly placed cuts or injuries to underlying tissues.
Benefits of Femto Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery (FLACS)?
Some potential benefits of Femto Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery (FLACS) include:
- Improved vision.
- Reduced dependence on glasses or contact lenses.
- Reduced risk of vision loss in the future.
- Reduced surgical time and cost.
- Increased accuracy and precision of surgery.
- Include less pain, less bleeding, and shorter hospital stay times.
- Customized Treatment: 3D eye imaging allows for unprecedented accuracy.
- Cuts (incisions) in precise form, size, and position.
- Gentle removal of the clouded lens.
How is robotic cataract surgery/FLACS performed?
Robotic cataract surgery is an exact and minimally invasive procedure that uses a robotic device to perform delicate operations inside the eye. During the surgery, the robot is used to remove cataracts and replace them with new, artificial lenses. This technology allows for more precise and accurate surgical procedures than traditional cataract surgery, leading to better patient outcomes.
We use The CATALYS® Laser System, a sophisticated laser that minimizes the risk of causing eye damage during cataract surgery, resulting in a quicker recovery and better visual outcome.
Risk Associated From Femto Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery (FLACS)
There are a few minor risks associated with FLACS, but overall the procedure is relatively safe. One potential risk is that the laser may not be able to completely cut through the cataract, leading to some residual clouding. However, this is relatively rare and typically only leads to minor visual impairment. Other risks include infection or bleeding at the surgery site, which can be treated with antibiotics or blood transfusions, and damage to nearby nerves or blood vessels. However, these rare occurrences typically result in only mild discomfort or inconvenience.
How Does The Laser Differ From Traditional Cataract Surgical Techniques?
Laser cataract surgery is a new and more advanced type of cataract surgery. It uses a laser to cut through the lens in your eye. This makes it easier to remove the cataract. The laser is different from traditional cataract surgical techniques in a few ways:
- It is much faster and less painful than conventional surgery.
- It does not require you to go under general anesthesia.
- It is much more accurate and allows for better vision after the surgery.
How much does robotic cataract surgery cost?
Robotic cataract surgery is less invasive and more effective than traditional cataract surgery. It uses special tools to remove the cataract without damaging the surrounding eye. Robotic cataract surgery varies but is usually less expensive than conventional surgery.
Conclusion: robotic cataract surgery is more accurate and efficient for eye surgery. It has many benefits, including reducing the risk of injury and ensuring a better patient outcome.
