The innovative Femtosecond Laser technology allows for the creation of corneal incisions and capsulorrhexis with computer guided Laser controlled precision. The laser also fragments the cataract into tiny pieces which can then be safely removed by the surgeon. The critical high resolution eye image mapping and measurements that are used to plan and perform the surgery to exact specifications are not attainable with traditional surgery. With the use of femtosecond laser, each aspect of cataract surgery is automatically programmed and monitored by the computer, highlighted Dr. Mirchia.
All in all, the presence of such state-of-the-art, cutting edge technology like Femtosecond Laser Technology at Chandigarh makes it accessible to people living in the adjoining areas for cataract surgery.
