What is Laser Lens Replacement?

Laser Lens Replacement, by addressing astigmatism and presbyopia, can allow you to reduce your need for glasses after cataract/lens surgery using LenSx and ORA and corrective lens implants (such as PanOptix) beyond what insurance covers for a basic therapeutic procedure.


Even though we use the most advanced technology available anywhere today, we cannot 100%-guarantee a perfect outcome for 100% of patients (nor can any surgeon in the world guarantee a perfect outcome for any patient.)


Laser Lens Replacement is a three step process over 3 months or more:

1) Replace: Your natural lens (cataract) is replaced with a prescription lens

implant made of acrylic plastic using 3D laser image guidance and laser precision and safety. Then you heal for 3 months or more.

2) Remove: Normally, scar tissue will build up on the plastic lens (since the body sees the lens as a foreign body) and gradually blur your vision over weeks to months or even years. We can remove the scar tissue ("polish the lens") with a YAG laser. YAG laser can be performed 3 months after the original procedure but sometimes needs to be performed even sooner in some cases.

3) Refine: Despite best efforts, 5% of eyes will heal off target in terms of the calculated focal point resulting in vision not quite clear enough to go without glasses. This is normal. LASIK or PRK can refine the focal point by reshaping the cornea to better match the lens implant so vision can be at its best without glasses. LASIK or PRK can be performed as early as 3 months after the original procedure on that eye.



LenSx Laser creates the incisions more precisely than a blade.

Performs the corneal arcuate incisions, lens opening incision and softens the lens.

ORA measures your eye after the cataract has been removed, to aid selecting the lens shape (football or basketball) and power that best fits your eye.
