Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center was the first hospital in Chicago to offer bladeless surgery for cataracts, using the LenSx laser. Our Vision Correction Center is one of only about 40 vision centers nationwide to offer treatment using LenSx.
Benefits of LenSx
This FDA-approved laser system offers patients even more safety and individualization during treatment to remove cataracts. LenSx is also the most accurate system available for cataract surgery, as it is preprogrammed for each individual’s eye.
Other benefits include:
Precision: LenSx allows surgeons to be even more precise during the procedure, which means less surrounding tissue damage for the patient.
Speed: The LenSx procedure takes only seconds to perform.
Better recovery: Patients experience faster healing times and less swelling.
Fewer complications: The procedure has a lower risk of complications compared to traditional cataract surgery.
Improved outcomes: The laser opens the lens and breaks up the cataract more precisely than ever before, increasing the probability that patients will not need eyeglasses, when combined with a premium lens implantation.
