Laser Cataract Technology
LENSAR® Laser System
The doctors at NewView Eye Center offer laser cataract surgery using the LENSAR® Laser System. Built specifically for cataract surgery, this femtosecond laser allows our cataract surgeons to create the optimal corneal incision, gently fragment your cloudy eye lens and remove it in a more precise and efficient manner than the traditional manual method. The cloudy lens is removed and the new intraocular lens (IOL) is placed through the same corneal incision.

Your doctor has access to superior imaging capabilities with this advanced cataract surgery process. LENSAR’s superior Augmented Reality™ technology provides a highly-detailed, 3D image of your eye so your treatment can be planned and performed with surgical confidence. Your doctor has access to an unprecedented level of biometric data including precise measurements of the location, length and depth of your cataract. The laser also allows for more precision when your new IOL is placed into your eye.
