CATARACT TREATMENTS /

No-Blade Cataract Surgery (FLACS)

Cataract is the clouding of the natural lens in our eye that may lead to blurring of vision. No-Blade Cataract Surgery, also known as Femtosecond Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery (FLACS) uses a Femtosecond laser (a powerful light beam) to assist in removing the cataract. This technology gives more surgical precision and safety in cataract surgery.
