Morristown Ophthalmology Associates Offers Customized Laser Systems for Cataract Surgery With Both Catalys® and LenSx® Lasers

Morristown, NJ, October 8, 2013 – Today, Morristown Ophthalmology Associates, PA is proud to offer both the Catalys® and LenSx® lasers as surgical options for patients having laser cataract surgery. Both of these femtosecond lasers are designed to provide more precision to the cataract procedure than in manual surgery.

Both the CATALYS® and LenSx® lasers use 3-D image guided technology that maps the patient’s eye; then the lasers use this computer-guided image to perform precise incisions that would normally be made with a steel or diamond knife. “Having both lasers available at our practice enables us to make an even more customized surgical plan based on our patients’ needs,” said Dr. Jeffrey Reisman. He continues, “These lasers are the most precise way to perform cataract surgery for patients who desire astigmatism correction and greater freedom from distance glasses. The results have lived up to both our, and our patients’ expectations.”

About Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery is the most commonly performed surgery in the United States with over 3 million procedures performed annually. A cataract is the age-related clouding of the naturally clear lens in the eye, resulting in hazy vision, unusual glare, poor night vision, and a reduction in color perception.

Traditional Cataract Surgery vs. Refractive Laser Cataract Surgery

With traditional cataract surgery, the surgeon makes incisions and removes the natural lens using surgical instruments with blades. When choosing either the CATALYS® or LenSx® laser approach for cataract surgery, the patient will enjoy the benefits of a “blade-free” surgical procedure, enhanced distance vision, the correction of astigmatism or full range of vision by using a multifocal lens implant.

“Many times patients have inquired, ‘Can my cataract be removed with a laser?’ This notion is now an exciting reality. We are committed to providing our patients with proven innovative technology and we are thrilled and privileged to be one of the first practices in the area to offer two laser cataract options for our patients,” said Dr. Reisman.

Morristown Ophthalmology Associates First in Morris County

To Offer CATALYS® Precision Laser System for Cataract Surgery

Millions of people around the world live with cataracts, a common condition in which the eye’s lens becomes progressively cloudy, making vision fuzzy or filmy and normal daily living activities more difficult. Poor vision caused by cataracts cannot be corrected with glasses or contacts, but it can be treated with surgery to remove and replace the cataract. In fact, cataract surgery is one of the most widely performed procedures worldwide, estimated at 19 million cases each year.

For decades, cataract surgeons have used handheld instruments to perform some of the most challenging parts of the procedure. Today, Dr. Jeffrey Reisman is performing these steps with an FDA market cleared, laser system called CATALYS®. CATALYS® combines a femtosecond laser, 3D imaging, sophisticated software and a number of other innovative features that make the cataract procedure highly customized, gentle and significantly more precise than manual surgery. The imaging and laser portion of the treatment takes only a few minutes and causes little or no discomfort to patients. Morristown Ophthalmology Associates is first in the Morristown area to offer this unique technology.

"Patients can benefit from a truly innovative solution, that allows for unprecedented customization in cataract surgery," said  Dr. Reisman. “When you choose to have your surgery performed with this CATALYS®, OptiMedica laser, you’ll enjoy a progressive cataract procedure which offers exquisite accuracy and precision previously not possible with manual techniques.”

Every eye has a distinct size and shape. CATALYS® & advanced 3D imaging technology customizes the cataract procedure by building a 3D map of each eye. Dr. Reisman then automatically tailors the individual patient’s treatment plan to that map.

Next, they use CATALYS® to create a circular opening in the capsule that holds the cataract. The goal in this step is to create an opening that is as circular as possible and sized to fit the replacement lens. Clinical studies have shown that CATALYS® creates these circular openings approximately 10 times more accurately than those created by hand.

The circular opening then allows the surgeon to access and remove the cataract. In the traditional manual procedure, a mechanical instrument and ultrasound energy are used during this step to break up and take out the lens. With CATALYS®, the laser softens the cataract and breaks it into tiny pieces. The new softening technique allows for more gentle removal by nearly or completely eliminating the ultrasound energy required. This low-energy approach reduces inflammation, with faster recovery expected. 

Depending on the patient’s pre-operative vision and desired visual result, Dr. Reisman may recommend a tailored treatment plan with CATALYS® that could include creating ultra-precise laser incisions in the cornea and a specific lens type, such as a multi-focal lens for near and far vision. This customized treatment, in most cases, will further reduce the need for contact lenses and glasses after surgery. 

“The CATALYS® laser offers more precise, gentle cataract procedure with a generally more rapid, visual recovery. It also gives us an opportunity for more tailored treatments for patients," said Dr. Reisman. 

The CATALYS® Precision Laser System was developed by global ophthalmic company OptiMedica Corp. (Sunnyvale, Calif.) in close collaboration with a Medical Advisory Board of cataract surgery experts from around the World.
