Laser Cataract Surgery: Is it Worth it?

Since the dawn of Surgical treatment of cataracts in the mid 1700′s, surgical techniques have improved in leaps and bounds – sutureless wounds, incision getting smaller  and a wide array of Intraocular lenses becoming available to make it possible to treat short-sightedness, long-sightedness, astigmatism and even presbyopia. Resulting in better vision post operatively with little or no need for visual hardware and shorter recovery time.

Now there is “Laser Cataract Surgery” – is it worth the extra cost?

Currently, research shows post operative results with “laser” cataract surgery is no better in comparison to conventional cataract surgery performed by an experienced surgeon.
