Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery Advances Mark Cataract Awareness
New York cataract surgeon Satish Modi, M.D. uses bladeless laser cataract surgery to offer excellent vision correction results for cataract patients.
PR9.NET August 01, 2012 - New York Cataract Surgeon Satish Modi, M.D., F.R.C.S. (C) of Seeta Eye Centers in Poughkeepsie, New York commented that "The growing awareness of cataracts is particularly noteworthy in light of the advances in cataract treatment brought about by the use of femtosecond laser cataract surgery for patients. As an experienced cataract surgeon, over the last 30 years I have made numerous refinements in my cataract surgery techniques as well as incorporated many proven advances in technology-all with the goal of making cataract surgery safer, more effective and more predictable for my patients. By and large we have done quite well. But, I must say, although I am a good cataract surgeon- any surgeon will tell you, we humans are not 'on' EVERY time we operate-the femtosecond laser IS, every time."
Cataracts are a clouding of the normally clear crystalline lens of the eye-they are not a growth or a film over the eye. For many patients cataracts start out slowly and have little effect on vision at first. But, as the cataract becomes denser, so does the impact on vision. The most common symptoms that bother patients with cataracts can include blurring of vision, sensitivity to light and glare, double vision in one eye, poor night vision, fading or yellowing of colors and frequent changes in glasses or contact lens prescriptions.
"Cataracts are quite prevalent with 'baby boomers' moving into the primary cataract development age range. At this moment, more than 20 million Americans age 40 and older have cataracts and more than half of all Americans will actually develop cataracts by age 80-and this is growing," stated Dr. Modi. "Along with becoming more aware of the symptoms of cataracts, patients can now learn more about the terrific advance of femtosecond laser cataract surgery as it helps them achieve even better and more predictable results when they are in need of cataract surgery and lens implants."
The integration of the femtosecond laser to assist in cataract surgery and lens implants offers the refinement of the combining the many skill intensive steps of cataract removal into a more predictable procedure that benefits from enhanced laser created, surgeon controlled precision resulting in further improved clinical results.
