Are You a Good Candidate for LenSx® Cataract Surgery?
With roughly half of Americans over age 65 suffering from cataracts, or the clouding of the eye’s natural lens and the leading cause of blindness among mature adults, many of our New York patients in Ithaca, Binghamton, Elmira, Corning, Cortland and Oneonta are excellent candidates for LenSx® cataract surgery.
This state-of-the-art, digital, bladeless, vision correction technology relies on a femtosecond laser with the power of making precise, effective incisions. The procedure provides the benefit of a non-invasive, individualized approach to your cataract surgery.
Most people who visit Dr. Daniel Sambursky are great candidates for LenSx® surgery.
Those patients for whom Dr. Sambursky might suggest an alternate approach to vision correction might be:
- Minors: LenSx® is not approved for pediatric surgery.
- Unable to lie flat and motionless during the procedure.
- Unable to provide consent for the surgery.
- Unable to tolerate local or topical anesthesia.
- Suffer from particular varieties of corneal disease.
The best way to determine whether LenSx® is the right procedure to remove your cataracts is to schedule a consultation with Binghamton cataract surgeon Dr. Sambursky, who also treats patients from Ithaca, Elmira, Corning, Cortland and Oneonta: 877-333-0700.
