Cataracts: LenSx

LenSx Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery

Senior man at eye exam
Quantum Vision Centers was the first in the St. Louis area, and one of the first in the country, to offer laser assisted cataract surgery with LenSx®.

Traditionally, the surgeon would perform cataract surgery by making a tiny incision in the eye and then using an instrument about the size of a pen tip to remove the cataract. Now, Quantum Vision Centers offers patients the option of choosing to have their procedure using LenSx®, a bladeless, computer-controlled refractive cataract laser that performs several of the most critical steps with an image-guided femtosecond laser – one of the most advanced devices of its kind.

The LenSx® laser uses a high-repetition rate femtosecond laser source to make all required incisions; to break apart the old, cloudy lens which is replaced by a new lens. Performing surgery with LenSx® is considered a safe, simple procedure that can literally change your life and ensure that you’ll be able to enjoy the things that matter most – from reading the paper to watching the sunset – for years to come. You can move forward and enjoy your new vision with confidence that you’ve chosen the most advanced technology available.
