St. Cloud Eye Clinic is pleased to announce the rollout of Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery for patients who are suffering from cataracts. St. Cloud Eye Clinic is first in the region to offer this exciting new laser cataract technology to patients.
“St. Cloud Eye Clinic has always been at the forefront of new technology,” said Dr. Richard Lucius, cataract surgeon at St. Cloud Eye Clinic. “We are committed to offering the latest technology to our patients, and Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery is the latest example of our commitment.”
LASIK Technology for Cataract Patients
The new laser technology, which has been used for years as part of LASIK surgery, is now approved for cataract surgery and replaces the need for a handheld blade during some of the most vital steps of the surgery.
“Vision is precious, and we are committed to doing everything we can to protect and enhance the vision of our patients,” said Dr. Steven Rice, cataract surgeon at St. Cloud Eye Clinic. “For some patients, cataract surgery with the new laser will have great benefits for their surgery experience and their vision.”
Dr. Bradley Anderson also commented on how the technology will benefit patients, “I am excited to utilize this new technology that has attracted a lot of interest from some of our patients. It will be fun to add another tool to our toolbox while bringing more options to offer our patients in order to achieve the best possible clinical outcomes.”
Cataract Surgery, Only Smarter
The St. Cloud Eye Clinic’s laser includes a superior Augmented Reality imaging system, which represents a more intelligent approach to cataract surgery. With Augmented Reality, your St. Cloud Eye Clinic surgeon can see everything inside your eye in greater detail. This allows the surgeon to plan the surgery better, to precisely soften the cataract in preparation for removal, and to ensure the appropriate condition for the most accurate placement of your new lens.
Together with advanced lens technology and an on-site surgery center, St. Cloud Eye Clinic continues to offer the region’s leading cataract surgery program, combining the latest technology with over 80 years of experience serving the St. Cloud Region.
