What Is FEMTO Laser Cataract Surgery?
At Rothchild Eye Institute, we take pride in offering the most state-of-the-art diagnostic techniques, including FETMO laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS). Often age-related, cataracts are a clouding of the natural lens of the eye and can interfere with your vision. Because cataracts are foggy areas within the lens itself, the lens must be removed and substituted with an IOL (intraocular lens) to treat the condition. Our femtosecond laser employs cutting-edge technology that can digitally diagram the surface of the eye and create a more exact, bladeless incision, enhancing treatment precision. For cataract surgery patients with refractive errors, like myopia, hyperopia, and presbyopia, tailor-made premium IOLs can be inserted during cataract surgery to serve as corrective lenses. To learn if you might be a good candidate for laser cataract surgery, please call our Delray Beach, FL practice and reserve a consultation.

Dr. Rothchild and his staff “Jennifer” had explained everything to me before during and after surgery. My results were excellent.

How Is Laser Cataract Surgery Performed?
Laser cataract surgery is very similar to traditional cataract treatment. With this approach, however, we utilize a computer-controlled femtosecond laser to choose the most effective incision site, create the incision, and disintegrate the cataract. A state-of-the-art technology, known as optical coherence tomography (OCT), plots an incredibly complex map of the eye, allowing the laser to determine the precise location of the cataract. The femtosecond laser then softens the cataract to allow for easier removal. As soon as the cataract is broken apart and removed, our cataract surgeon will insert the selected artificial lens. Laser technology allows for a quick outpatient procedure and can help expedite healing time.
