Every eye has a unique size and shape. CATALYS® advanced 3D imaging technology builds a 3D map of each eye and tailors the treatment to that map. This enables Dr. Lee to create a customized treatment plan that matches the uniqueness of each eye.
Next, Dr. Lee uses CATALYS® to create a circular opening for accessing and removing the cataract. Clinical studies have shown that this opening is approximately 10 times more accurate when performed with CATALYS® than what is achievable by hand.1,2 CATALYS® then softens and breaks up the hard cataract into tiny pieces, allowing for gentler, easier cataract removal.3
Combining Cataract Surgery with Astigmatism Treatment
Depending on the patient’s pre-operative vision and desired visual result, Dr. Lee may recommend a tailored treatment plan that could include creating ultra-precise laser incisions in the cornea and a specific clear lens type, such as a multi-focal lens. This tailored treatment may reduce a patient’s need for glasses or contacts after surgery.
After Cataract Surgery
Following Catalys® Laser system cataract surgery, no sutures are needed to close the incisions, which are extremely small and water-tight. Dr. Lee will prescribe eye drops to keep the eyes hydrated and clean while incisions heal. Patients may experience a mild irritation or light sensitivity for a few days. In most treatments, patients experience little to no pain and do not require pain medication. A follow-up consultation ensures that the cornea is healing properly, and that the patient is experiencing the full benefits of the procedure.
