JEA Offers Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery

By age 75, half of all Americans have had cataracts. Jackson Eye Associates now offers the most advanced technology to perform cataract surgery, resulting in greater precision with no surgical blades.

A cataract forms when the natural lens of the eye becomes cloudy, and occurs naturally as we age. Traditionally, surgeons use a surgical knife to make tiny incisions to break up and remove the cloudy lens of the eye, which is then replaced with an artificial intraocular lens.

Using the LensX ® Laser, JEA’s cataract team maps the unique contours of each patient’s eye, providing precise measurements and data for a completely customized procedure. Then, using advanced 3-D imaging, the computer-assisted surgery is performed with the laser and no surgical blades. In a space as small as the pupil of an eye, the improved data and accuracy can make a dramatic difference. Those with astigmatism are the best candidates for this procedure.

Thanks to this innovative technology, laser cataract surgery is an outpatient procedure, with improved vision as soon as two weeks and optimal vision as soon as two months after the procedure. We get you back to doing the things you love.

The JEA laser cataract team includes Dr. Robert Mallette, Dr. Philip Smith, Dr. Taylor Smith and Dr. Ken Toler. They are all board-certified ophthalmologists with extensive training in the LensX® Laser system.

If you or someone you love is suffering from poor eyesight due to cataracts, contact Jackson Eye Associates today to learn about your options using the most advanced technology available. Laser cataract surgery, now available at JEA.
