bladeless cataract surgery

femtoAs the first ophthalmology practice in the United States to offer patients bladeless cataract surgery with the Zeimer Femto Z6 Laser, our eye doctors at Milan Eye Center can perform cataract surgery with unparalleled precision.

Unlike traditional cataract surgery methods, the Femto LDV Z6 laser system from Zeimer Ophthalmic Systems does not use any blades. Instead, cataract surgeons at Milan Eye Center will be able to perform a less invasive cataract surgery with the Femto LDV laser. The Z6 femtosecond laser offers the safest possible solution for cataract removal through a combination of groundbreaking scanning technology, precise laser pulses, and programmable, custom incisions.

How Is Traditional Cataract Surgery Performed?

A traditional cataract surgery procedure typically takes ten minutes. After making an incision in the cornea with a microscopic blade, the cataract is broken into small pieces using ultrasound waves. The small pieces are then removed using a specialized vacuum device.

How Is Bladeless Cataract Surgery Performed?

In contrast, during a bladeless cataract surgery, Milan Eye Center surgeons use the Femto LDV laser to make a more precise incision. During the ten minute cataract procedure, the Femto LDV scans the entire eye through a water-fill layer, determining the exact thickness and location of the cataract and projecting a grid of precise coordinates for every single laser pulse that will be emitted during the procedure. Instead of using estimated algorithms, Milan Eye Center doctors can use the detailed mapping capabilities of the Z6 to calculate the exact location of the cataract. Furthermore, the accuracy of the Femtosecond LDV Z6 laser system also extends to astigmatism correction during a cataract surgery, allowing our ophthalmologists to create precise, customized incisions that are tailored to each patient’s unique eye anatomy.

“Seeing Dr. Sajja was very easy and efficient. He was very thorough and professional. He was also very honest in what he felt needed to be done. He also had a very good bedside manner and was caring, nothing was painful at all. The surgery was a quick procedure and I was in excellent care. I was amazed that Dr. Sajja himself called me two days after surgery to check-up on me!”

“Dr. Milan Patel is an excellent, caring physician. From the initial exam through cataract surgery he was very patient with explaining the surgery and recovery process. I had both eyes replaced with new lenses and felt extremely comfortable through both procedures. I highly, highly recommend him!”

“I was scared of having my cataracts removed, but the doctor and all of the staff made me most comfortable. There was no pain & the recovery was short. I would recommend Dr. Desai to anyone who needs surgery. And the people who work there are just wonderful”
