Mehta Eye Clinic is the first Eye Clinic in the city of Mumbai to introduce LenSx® – the completely bladeless Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery. LenSx® is unquestionably the most technologically advanced option for Cataract patients and offers numerous advantages over traditional Cataract surgery. We have in fact set a new milestone for ourselves by adopting this path breaking technology for our cataract surgeries and are eager to make a difference to our patient community.
Also known as FemtoSecond Laser, the LenSx® Laser is a revolutionary, Robotic precision Cataract Surgery technology
certified by the US-FDA. The excellent performance of LenSx® enables to reduce dependency on human skill by replacing it with advanced technology. It enables surgeons to operate with unmatched precision and computer-control, and customize the procedure to your eye. Thereby, ensuring predictable outcome in every single patient case.
LenSx® is not an experimental technology. It has fast gained popularity in the USA and more than 27,000 LenSx® laser cataract surgeries have been performed in 30 countries by over 600 surgeons. Until now, traditional Cataract surgery involved the use of a manual surgical blade to open the eye and capsule supporting the lens, which increased the chance of outcome variability. Now with LenSx® Laser, we are able to automate some of the most challenging steps of Cataract surgery.
LenSx® Laser machines provides surgeons with real time video imaging, with 3 three dimensional visualisation of the entire anterior segment, for greater surgical accuracy than before. Surgeons use the high-res visualization technology to guide the process and ensure properly shaped and custom-centered incisions with precision and safety. The Laser softens the cataract and helps it to break up easily without any trauma to the eye. LenSx® further enables surgeons to remove the tiny pieces of cataract smoothly and provide better positioning of the replacement lens for the patient.
Within just one month of installing this technology, we have successfully completed significant number of LenSx® Laser surgeries. Dr Siddharth Mehta is in fact the first surgeon in Mumbai to do a LenSx® Laser surgery!
