The LenSx® Laser is restricted by law to the sale and use by, or on the order of, a physician.
The LenSx® 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. The LenSx® Laser uses an accessory called the LenSx® Laser Patient Interface to hold the eye steady during a procedure.
The LenSx® Laser Patient Interface holds an eye 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.
Surgery with the LenSx® Laser is not for everyone. Conditions such as corneal opacity, glaucoma, a poorly dilating pupil and previous corneal surgery may preclude use of the LenSx® Laser. Your doctor can determine if the LenSx® Laser is right for you.
