All too often, you’ve heard the expression, “You don’t know what you have until it’s gone.” Nothing could be more fitting when it comes to vision loss. If you are experiencing serious problems with your vision due to cataracts, it can be extremely frustrating. You just want to be able to see the world around you and enjoy everything life has to offer. Fortunately, there are corrective procedures that can help you to restore your vision. LenSx laser treatments offer you benefits that can help you to have clearer vision. Learn more about what this innovative form of technology can do for you.
How Can the LenSx Laser Help You to Treat Cataracts?
Cataracts are a common problem that typically comes with the aging process. You may not realize it, but you have two lenses in your eyes. The cornea is the outer lens. When people have laser surgery to correct vision problems, such as being farsighted, nearsighted, or astigmatism, the cornea is altered. Beneath this outer lens is another lens known as the crystalline lens. This lens is clear when you are young. However, it will begin to turn yellow and harden as you get older. In severe cases, you may get to the point that you cannot see well or at all due to the progression of your cataracts.
The LenSx laser can help you to have clear vision once again. When cataract surgery was first developed, a surgical blade was used to remove the crystalline lens that was damaged by a cataract. Thanks to the latest advances in the field and the development of a highly precise laser known as the LenSx, your cataracts can be removed with great precision.
