This state-of-the-art laser system is equipped with high-definition imaging for precise treatment planning and execution. At the Laser Vision Correction Center of New Jersey, Dr. Kenneth S.

His years of experience and training in advanced technologies make him highly-qualified to perform this specialized treatment.

The Importance of Cataract Treatment

Cataracts develop when the lens of the eye begins to cloud. Typically related to aging, cataracts are quite common in older patients. By age 65, approximately 90 percent of people have signs of cataract, however, age-related cataracts can develop in your 40s or 50s. Left untreated, cataracts can take a serious toll on your eyesight, resulting in dull, blurred, or diminished vision. Laser cataract treatment can effectively address this condition and improve your overall quality of life.

Who is a Candidate for Laser Cataract Surgery?

People experiencing decreased vision affecting their daily routine or lifestyle, may qualify for laser cataract treatment. You may be eligible if you:

  • Have difficulty driving at night 
  • Have difficulty with glare, day or night
  • Notice colors appear dull or muted
  • Have blurred vision
  • Have difficulty reading with your reading glasses
  • Have difficulty seeing well enough to complete daily tasks

Cataracts usually develop gradually, however, if you notice decreased vision before your next scheduled appointment, please contact our office to schedule a consultation.

Laser Cataract Surgery Treatment Process

At the Laser Vision Correction Center of New Jersey, we primarily perform laser cataract surgery with the LenSx laser system. This innovative FDA-approved technology was designed to take the place of traditional cataract treatment methods, which necessitated the use of a scalpel. LenSx provides unparalleled precision and enables Dr. Miller to customize each procedure according to the needs of the patient. Dr. Miller is also certified on the CATALYS® femtosecond laser system. During your initial consultation, Dr. Miller will determine the treatment option best suited for your lifestyle needs.

LenSx® provides unparalleled precision and enables Dr. Miller to customize each procedure according to the needs of the patient.

The LenSx Procedure for Correction of Astigmatism

Dr. Miller can also use the LenSx laser system to treat corneal astigmatism at the time of cataract surgery. This supplemental procedure is known as Astigmatic Keratotomy (AK). The laser is used to make small, relaxing incisions in the peripheral cornea, which reduces astigmatism, thereby enhancing clarity of the post op visual result.

Traditionally, AK was performed with a scalpel, however, utilizing the LenSx laser system provides a much more precise treatment alternative, ensuring the exact length and depth of the micro incisions. The laser portion of the procedure takes seconds and the entire cataract procedure is typically performed in approximately 10 minutes.

Benefits of Laser Cataract Treatment

Laser cataract treatment offers astounding advantages over the traditional surgical methods. This technology provides:

  • Enhanced computer automation
  • Increased surgical precision
  • Efficient patient interface
  • High-definition imaging for clear treatment planning
  • Real-time imaging
  • Simultaneous astigmatism treatment

We are proud to deliver the highest standard of care at our practice and will take the time to provide you with details of the entire treatment process. It is our goal to ensure you feel confident in our services.
