LASER CATARACT SURGERY
Dr. Ellen Schneider is the first eye surgeon in St. Tammany Parish to perform laser cataract surgery.
While traditional cataract surgery is one of the safest and most successful medical procedures today, laser cataract surgery is a technological breakthrough that has significantly improved the accuracy and precision of this surgery. With traditional cataract surgery, incisions are created manually with a blade. With laser cataract surgery, the incisions are bladeless, as they are created with the laser.
Each patient’s unique measurements are customized. Using computer-guided 3D imaging, incisions are created with micron-level precision; astigmatism is reduced, which provides better visual outcomes.
When laser cataract surgery is paired with premium intraocular lenses such as the ReStor multifocal lens, there is no need for glasses after surgery; glasses are no longer required for reading, driving, or using computers and smart phones.
