Bladeless Cataract Surgery

The same innovation used for all-laser LASIK is revolutionizing cataract surgery.

Bladeless Cataract Surgery is the newest, innovative procedure that removes cataracts with greater precision without the need for a surgical blade.

Eye Associates of Tucson is proud to introduce Bladeless Cataract Surgery with the LenSx® Femtosecond Laser to Tucson and Southern Arizona. Our nationally recognized surgeons, Michael Diesenhouse M.D. and Melanie McCarty M.D., take pride in staying on top of the newest technology and are part of a select group of doctors in the United States who perform cataract surgery using this advanced procedure.

The FDA approved LenSx® Laser is one of the most important technological advances in the field of cataract surgery in over 20 years. It allows our surgeons to plan and customize each procedure to the unique characteristics of each patient's eye. In fact, the LenSx® computer-guided, surgeon-controlled laser has a number of advantages when compared to traditional cataract surgery:

  • Allows for greater surgical precision
  • Potential for no surgical blades for corneal incisions and anterior capsulotomy
  • Custom-guided laser is programmed for the most precise treatment on each unique individual
  • Automates what are typically very challenging steps in traditional cataract surgery
  • Corrects for Astigmatism, via laser rather than a manual incision, during the time of cataract surgery, which can lessen the need for glasses post-operatively
