Conditions & Treatments
The lens in the eye can become cloudy and hard, a condition known as a cataract. Cataracts can develop from normal aging, from an eye injury, or as a complication of medications such as steroids.
Cataracts may cause blurred vision, sensitivity to light, glare and ghost images. If the cataract changes vision so much that it interferes with activities of daily life, it may need to be removed. Surgery is the only way to cure a cataract.
Emory Eye Center surgeons provide the latest technology for your cataract surgery, the femtosecond laser-assisted LenSx® system. This precision-based system is bladeless, computer-controlled and performed to exacting, individualized specifications—for you. The LensSx allows complete customization for each patient, providing the best opportunity to get the vision you want after cataract surgery.
Discuss this new technology with your surgeon to see if it is right for you. Your surgeon will perform a thorough evaluation to determine your candidacy for this new technology.
