Refractive Laser Assisted Cataract (ReLACS)
Surgery patients who desire to reduce their dependence on glasses after cataract surgery may choose to have laser vision correction performed. ReLACS or Refractive Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery is a custom, blade-free cataract removal procedure. Traditional cataract surgery has always involved a blade to create several small incisions during the procedure. With ReLACS, these incisions are now made with a laser.
This technology allows surgeons to plan and perform cataract surgeries with laser precision. Surgeons experience more control and flexibility, plus ReLACS features real-time tools for an accurate visual of whats going on inside the eye. When used in conjunction, ReLACS and a variety of intraocular lenses may give you even more visual freedom after cataract surgery.
