Most Advanced Laser For Cataract Surgery

When a patient has astigmatism and has selected a multi-vision IOL, the LenSx ® laser will make precisely shaped and configured depth incisions in the edge of the cornea to reduce the pre-existing astigmatism.  These are called Limbal Relaxing Incisions.

Dr. Batra couples the LenSx ® Laser with the ORA™, another revolutionary technology that only a handful of ophthalmologists in the country have, to help ensure his patients have the very best vision possible. The precise ORA™ allows Dr. Batra to capture an image of the patient's eye in "real time." This verifies the Intraocular Lens prescription at the time of surgery. Most patients don't need glasses after surgery.

"LenSx ® has over 95 percent accuracy when combined with WaveTec™ ORA™, compared to using traditional cutting cataract surgery, which is only 50 percent. This percentage allows the patient to be free of glasses. This is a major leap in the world of ophthalmology," states Dr. Batra.



Journal of Refractive Surgery, December 2009:

"Femtosecond lasers represent an important technological advance in ophthalmic surgery. Combined with computer-controlled optical delivery systems, femtosecond can produce precise incisions without collateral damage to surrounding tissues. The precision of femtosecond lasers exceed that of highly sophisticated mechanical devices, with few collateral tissue effects." 



Dr. Batra says LenSx ® patients have faster recovery, less chance of complications, and better outcomes.  With the LenSx ® Laser, cataract surgery is more precise, generally takes 15 minutes to complete and patients are back to their daily activities in one to two days. 

Angela Burgess says her experience with the Batra Vision Medical Group was outstanding.  The nurse held her hand during surgery and she felt protected in their care because they have the latest technology.  After her surgery, Angela was overwhelmed, "I saw bright colors!  I thought, 'this is what heaven must be like.' I cried with joy." Angela plans to have the cataract in her right eye removed soon, is excited and planning a trip to see the snow, with new eyes.

Most health insurance and Medicare pay for cataract removal and standard lenses.
