Exploring Your Options: Laser or Traditional
The future of cataract surgery is here. Laser cataract surgery is designed with your comfort in mind. David M. Harman, M.D. is pleased to offer the highly advanced VICTUS laser cataract procedure, which is designed to complement the physician’s skills with computer-guided accuracy and offers laser precision. Dr. Harman uses the VICTUS laser system to create a blade-free incision in the eye to break up and remove the cataract. In traditional cataract surgery, Dr. Harman places a small incision in the eye and removes the cataract by a process of phacoemulsification – sound waves to disintegrate the cataract and then vacuums the particles from the eye. Similar to the process of laser surgery – the same time the cataract is removed, the lens of the eye is replaced with a clear lens implant.
