Proven Precision Reproducibility and Accuracy at Every Step Versus Manual Procedures

Robotic Bladeless Cataract Surgery Center Gurgaon

Incredible Precision, Outstanding Results!

Ahooja Eye & Dental institute Gurgaon also offers bladeless robotic cataract surgery.

Just like no two people are the same, your eyes are unique to you and you alone. That’s why each eye must be carefully measured, mapped and prepared for cataract surgery. That preparation is now more customized and precise with the bladeless robotic laser cataract surgery at Ahooja Eye.

This computer-controlled, laser-assisted surgery utilizes advanced precision methods to capture a high-resolution image of the eyes. These images combined with precise measurements and data help form a more exacting surgical plan. The level of customization allowed with a bladeless robotic cataract surgery is revolutionary and virtually unattainable with conventional surgical methods.

Important Information About Bladeless Cataract Surgery

Laser is for use in patients undergoing cataract surgery. The laser is used as a tool to break up a cataract and to create incisions in the cornea as part of a cataract surgery. Laser may also be used for the creation of corneal flaps in LASIK surgery, or for the creation of pockets or tunnels in the cornea to accommodate the placement of corneal implants.

Laser uses a SoftFit® Patient Interface to hold the eye still by applying light suction. Some bleeding and foreign body sensation may occur. As with any cataract surgery, there are risks involved. These risks may include but are not limited to infection, pain, corneal abrasion and capsular tear.

    Benefits of Bladeless Cataract Surgery (Femto Laser)

    High Precision Unmatched by Human Hands:

    The laser ushers in a new era of automation, enhancing the skills of the surgeon, making the most difficult steps of Phaco surgery simple and 100% accurate, thereby improving the safety and visual outcomes of cataract surgery. Imagine drawing a circle with a computer-guided printer, compared to a human hand, and one can understand the difference.

    Bladeless Cataract Surgery:

    Since the laser is the cutting tool during the entire surgery, no blades or knives are used during the procedure, also earning it the nomenclature of bladeless cataract surgery. A computer-controlled laser is a more precise and a better cutting tool than a hand-held For people who have a phobia for blades and needles, working on such a delicate system as the human eye, this procedure is a welcome relief.

    Improves Vision:

    Conventional Phaco only addresses the problem of cataract, without having any impact on pre-existing astigmatism (cylindrical power) due to abnormal corneal curvature. Femto laser also corrects the pre-existing cylinder in a patient’s eye, using its astigmatic correction module (LRI) thereby resulting in a better outcome as compared to conventional Phaco. Henceforth, cataract surgery is not just a procedure for visual rehabilitation, but an experience of the enhanced result.

    Safer:

    Phaco is considered a reasonably safe surgery; however, the femto laser system further enhances the safety by improving the performance of a surgeon and reducing the chances of human error. The computer controlled incisions made by the laser are more precise and accurate than manual incisions, regarding depth and architecture. Due to this, wound seals better and there are only fewer chances of infection.

    A Basic Platform for Advanced Technology (AT) IOLs: Premium Intra-ocular lenses (IOLs) require a perfectly centered, round and fixed diameter capsular opening for best centering of the lens within the eye, with better focus and improved results possible only with Femto laser.

    US-FDA Approved:

    After completing clinical trials, receiving the CE mark, and US FDA approval, the Femtosecond Laser cataract surgery machine is now available in India also.

    Limitations of the Procedure

    The procedure is not advocated in patients with poorly dilating pupils, and in those with advanced glaucoma. It is not the procedure of choice for patients with corneal opacities.

    Technique

    The Femtosecond laser is docked on the eye using a Patient Interface (PI) and a soft specially designed contact lens. Live continuous 3-D OCT pictures are streamed on to the computer screen. Main incision, side port incision, and Capsular opening are marked on the computer screen. Astigmatic control incisions if required are also marked.

    On a press of a button, the laser completes all the steps in approximately 45 seconds. The eye is undocked. The patient shifted to the main OT. The incisions are entered with a spatula. The fragmented nuclear material is aspirated out, and an IOL inserted. No sutures are required as the incisions are self-sealing.

    Bladeless Cataract Surgery FAQ’s

    What is FLACS .

    It is this latest technique, without opening the eye a laser light beam creates an opening into the envelope housing the cataract and divides the lens into small pieces. Thereafter, the phaco probe is used to aspirate the divided pieces. This method minimises the recovery time, reduces the risk of complications compared to the manual phaco. This is a very advance form of cataract surgery available in science today.

    What are advantages of Flacs .

    1. Enhanced Precision : Live image guided surgery to increase the precision.
    2. Enhanced Safety : Some manual steps are done with laser without opening the eye.
    3. Enhanced Predictability : Better positioning of lens for more predictable visual outcomes.
    4. Reduced Intra-operative time : Less amount of phaco energy is used resulting in rapid recovery.

    Cataract Treatment Cost in Gurgaon and NCR depends on the following factors

    • Type of cataract surgery – Flacs ( Laser Surgery ) or Routine Phacoemulsification
    • Type of IOL – regular foldable, Premium IOL, Toric IOL, Multifocal IOL, Trifocal IOL
    • Type of Eye Hospital – Large institutes which have everything under one roof and have safety certificates like NABH, ISO 9001:2015 etc are always preferred as they can manage all related eye conditions under one roof.

    What type of Cataract Treatment is suited for me?

    Cataract surgery is divided into 2 parts:

    1. Removal of cataract from the eye
    2. Implantation of the artificial foldable lens ( IOL ) in the eye
      Cataract removal was traditionally performed by Phacoemulsification (no stitch surgery), a modern procedure for the removal of the cataract. We offer our patients Femto Second Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery ( FLACS ). More than 50-60% Cataract surgery happening nowadays is Bladeless and done with the FLACS method. After removing the cataract we insert a foldable IOL.

    We offer multiple IOL like Foldable, Toric Lens, Multifocal Lens, Trifocal lens, Panoptix lens, etc. These IOL options might help eliminate the need to use glasses after cataract surgery.

    If a FLACS is performed then there is NO INJECTION, NO STITCH, NO PATCH, NO PAIN & NO GLASSES.
