If your eye doctor or ophthalmologist has recently diagnosed you with cataracts,
you might want to learn more about what treatments for cataracts are most
effective. Cataract eye surgery remains one of the safest and most effective
treatments for cataracts available. IntraLase cataract surgery is a method
of laser eye surgery that removes the clouded lens from the eye using
a highly precise and safe medical laser.
Because the IntraLase medical laser is blade-free, your risk of complications,
pain, and side effects is significantly lowered. As the laser makes incisions,
the heat from the laser immediately sterilizes the area, preventing infection
and promoting healing. Once your eye doctor removes your damaged lens
using the IntraLase medical laser, he will replace the lens with a high-tech
lens implant. This implant is known as permanent intraocular lens implant.
If you’re interested in learning more about IntraLase cataract surgery and other
