- Cataract Patient of Dr. SolomonPatient Testimonials
As the 2016 president of the American Society of Cataract & Refractive Surgery and one of the “Top 50 Opinion Leaders in the Fields of Cataract and Refractive Surgery” in the world, Dr. Solomon is esteemed by his colleagues and the ophthalmic device manufacturers. He is often invited to be the first to use new products or procedures, such as laser assisted cataract surgery using femtosecond technology.
The FDA-approved LenSx laser system is the newest major advancement in cataract surgery. It’s based on the same femtosecond technology used during bladeless LASIK procedures. The LenSx laser replaces the need for hand-held blades during cataract surgery, further improving accuracy, healing time and ultimately your results. It gives the surgeon image-guided control and the ability to plan and customize every procedure to the unique characteristics of the patient’s eye. The advanced laser not only creates extremely precise cataract incisions and breaks up the cloudy lens for easier removal; it also has the ability to correct astigmatism with more accuracy and predictability than before.
Until recently, surgeons would have to wait until after cataract surgery and healing was completed to assess the accuracy of the vision correction. Thanks to ORA technology, that is no longer the case. Using this sophisticated technology, Dr. Solomon can easily measure the vision correction accuracy during surgery when it is needed most. Having that information during the procedure makes it possible to fine-tune surgical adjustments and achieve results that exceed those previously available.
We’re proud to have been the first in the country to offer these amazing technologies.
