Dr. Scoper is one of only a few eye surgeons in the entire country certified to use revolutionary laser technology for the treatment of cataracts, making Virginia Eye Consultants the first practice in Virginia and the 13th in the nation to offer this advanced technology.
What is the revolutionary laser technology? It’s the most technologically advanced option for cataract patients today. The laser makes a map of the eye, making the procedure 100 percent customized for each patient.
For nearly a decade, femtosecond lasers have helped surgeons perform LASIK. The laser technology allows doctors to use femtosecond laser technology for cataract removal, making cataract surgery more precise, predictable and safe.
Prior to the laser, traditional cataract surgery involved several small, manually-made incisions with a blade. The surgeon would use ultrasound vibrations to remove the cloudy lens, then replace it with a manmade lens implant.
With laser technology, the surgeon can create those incisions with a significantly higher degree of precision. The femtosecond laser makes the corneal incisions, breaks apart the cloudy cataract lens and creates a perfect size capsulotomy.
Overall, the laser provides more accuracy, precision and control than traditional cataract surgery.
