LenSx Femtosecond Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery
Snead Eye Group is committed to offering the latest technology and state-of-the-art equipment for superior surgical outcomes. Snead Eye Group is the only practice in the Southwest Florida area offering LenSx Femtosecond Cataract Laser surgery in BOTH of their surgery centers. Snead Eye Group is proud to offer the revolutionary LenSx®Femtosecond Cataract Laser which provides cataract patients with an optimized refractive cataract surgery experience. Typically, cataract surgeries are performed manually where the surgeon uses a blade to create all of the incisions during the procedure. With the introduction of the first FDA cleared custom cataract laser, the LenSx®Femtosecond Cataract Laser, the cataract surgeons at Snead Eye Group can create incisions and reduce Astigmatism with a laser.
Successful Cataract Surgery
Everyone heals somewhat differently, but many cataract patients report improvement in their vision almost immediately after the procedure. Because cataract surgery at Snead Eye Group only uses a topical anesthetic and a self-sealing incision, most patients return to their normal work and lifestyle routines within a day or two.
According to a survey conducted by the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, more than 98% of cataract patients had their vision successfully improved after surgery. Many patients experienced vision that is actually better than before they developed cataracts. Once removed, cataracts will not grow back. However, some patients may experience clouding of a thin tissue called the capsule or “bag” that holds the intra-ocular lens (IOL.) In most cases a laser is used to painlessly open the clouded capsule and restore clear vision.

Cataract Surgery Using Self-Sealing Incision and Topical Anesthesia
Topical anesthesia and self-sealing incisions are additional improvements that have taken cataract surgery to the next level. Many patients are able to see with clear vision much sooner after the surgery than years ago. In most cases it is now possible to return to daily activities such as driving and reading almost immediately.
Sometimes after cataract surgery, the back or posterior part of the lens capsule, or lens covering, becomes cloudy or opacified. This cloudiness is usually caused by cells growing onto the back of the capsule, causing blurred vision, glare or light sensitivity. Although not a true cataract, it is often referred to as a “secondary cataract”. This procedure is done as an outpatient procedure that does not require anesthesia. It is perfectly normal and can be removed by a quick and simple laser procedure.
