LenSx® Laser

A New Class of Cataract Procedure for North Dakota


Dr. Nagy demonstrated enhanced surgical accuracy and reproducibility:

  • All anterior capsulotomies created with the LenSx® Laser achieved accurate centration and intended diameter, with no radial tears or adverse events seen.
  • Corneal incisions created with the LenSx® Laser were highly reproducible, with precise dimensions and geometry.
  • In the same study, only 10% of manually created capsulorhexis achieved a similar diameter accuracy of +/-0.25 mm1,2. These results can be seen in the diagram, below.

Diameter Accuracy of the LenSx® Laser Versus Manual Capsulorhexis1

Only 10% of manual capsulorhexis achieved diameter accuracy of +/- 0.25 mm.

Enhanced Reproducibility

The LenSx® Laser can perform anterior capsulotomy, lens fragmentation and all corneal incisions with tremendous reproducibility. It is also used to reduce small amounts of astigmatism, making the post-operative vision even better than before.

The system performs surgery according to your surgeon’s preferences. From clean three-plane corneal incisions to customized fragmentation patterns, we can create predictable cuts that carry through subsequent steps of refractive cataract surgery.
