The CATALYS® Laser System is a technologically advanced laser designed to administer an extremely gentle cataract surgery that aids recovery time. And, like advanced technology, it provides an unparalleled level of accuracy and precision to some of the more challenging steps of cataract surgery such as:
Capsulotomy – a centrally placed and tightly controlled circular incision allowing access to the cataract.
Lens Segmentation and Softening – treatment of the cataract itself to aid removal and minimize or eliminate ultrasonic energy delivered into the eye.
Arcuate Incisions or Limbal Relaxing Incisions – are used to treat astigmatism. The laser can produce these within pockets to help offset dry eye conditions.
Cataract Incisions – precisely located and sized incisions normally done with blades to allow access to the cataract.
Traditionally, the eye surgeon uses blades to create incisions for lens treatment and removal. The laser uses computer-guided imaging with over 10,000 scans to produce a highly detailed and customized image of your eye. This image is the basis for the treatment plan and laser control to produce incredibly precise incisions instead of manual incisions.
Usage of the laser to pre-treat the lens prior to its removal can minimize and in many cases significantly reduce the usage of phacoemulsification (ultrasonic) energy applied within the eye, minimizing ocular trauma and aiding recovery.
Astigmatism is an irregular curvature of the cornea. When light enters the front part of the eye, this irregularity bends light in one direction more than another, which can lead to blurred vision. This condition can be treated with the CATALYS® Laser with the creation of Limbal Relaxing Incisions placed strategically to address the corneal irregularity.
