What Are the Benefits of Laser Cataract Surgery?

At some point in their lifetime, virtually everyone will be affected by cataracts. If left unmanaged, this condition can gradually worsen, eventually leading to functional blindness in certain individuals. Fortunately, cataract surgery treatment options have advanced tremendously over the years—so much so that almost anyone experiencing vision loss and/or poor eyesight due to cataracts is considered a good candidate for some form of surgical correction.

While traditional surgical methods can still provide excellent outcomes when performed by a skilled ophthalmologist, one of the latest advancements in cataract surgery—laser-assisted surgery—can offer many patients a number of unique advantages. Some possible benefits of laser cataract surgery include:

Computer-controlled 3D mapping of the eye prior to surgery for more precise measurements, improved predictability, and customized treatment planning

Ultimately, through the use of laser technology, cataract surgery can be performed more predictably and accurately than ever before. If you are interested in treatment for cataracts in the Baltimore area, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Jay C. Grochmal. Following an examination, he can determine if you would be a good candidate for laser cataract surgery, or if another treatment option would be more appropriate at this time.
