The Future of Cataract Surgery Is here in San Antonio
Dr. Iskander is the first ophthalmologist in Texas to be certified on the LENSAR™ femtosecond system. This certification required Dr. Iskander to be proficient in all aspects of using the laser.
The certification involved 16 capsultomies; 10 clear corneal incisions; and 10 laser arcuate incisions.
What is the LENSAR™ Laser System?
San Antonio Eye Specialists is excited to bring the next advancement in cataract removal technology to San Antonio – the LENSAR™ Laser System. Using the LENSAR™ Laser System, Dr. Iskander can perform many of the necessary steps of cataract removal with the utilization of a Femtosecond laser versus a manual blade. This technology can add a greater amount of precision, safety and improved visual outcome to the entire cataract procedure.1 The LENSAR™ also allows Dr. Iskander to perform cataract surgery with more ease, convenience, and speed than with traditional methods.
The LENSAR™ Laser System is an imaging system and a laser in one. In step 1, the system creates a 3-D model of the patient’s eye that can help Dr. Iskander create a customized treatment plan. In step 2, Dr. Iskander uses the laser to create incredibly precise incisions and an opening to the lens capsule, which contains the cataract. He can also soften the cataract in a safe, precise way, making it easier to remove.
The LENSAR™ Laser System uses a superior imaging system called Augmented Reality, which collects a widespread spectrum of biometric data and reconstructs a sophisticated 3-D model of the true anatomy of the eye. Because this technology allows Dr. Iskander to see exactly where the relevant anatomy is in the eye for all grades of white or brunescent (brown) cataracts, he can offer his patients a better, customized, and precise cataract removal procedure.
Why you should choose LENSAR™ Laser Cataract Surgery?
This type of femtosecond laser technology is much more precise than the older method of using a manual blade to perform cataract surgery.
Using the precision of LENSAR’s imaging and laser incisions, this technology can allow Dr. Iskander to remove his patient’s cataract safely and ensure that the new intraocular lens is centrally placed, which can result in better visual outcomes.
