LensX laser-assisted cataract surgery now available at Illinois Cornea Center

The Alcon LensX laser platform is the leading technology in the burgeoning field of laser-assisted custom cataract surgery. Chicago Cornea Consultants™ is excited to offer this new, precision driven option to our patients in the Hoffman Estates office. Dr Parag Majmudar and Dr Maria Rosselson, who have enjoyed performing conventional cataract surgeries at the Hoffman Estates Surgery Center for several years are now enhancing patient experiences with the option of including the LensX. The laser creates customized corneal incisions and exquisitely positioned capsulorrhexes. It has the capacity to make very exact limbal relaxing incisions for treatment of astigmatism. Additionally, the laser divides the lens nucleus prior to phacoemulsification, which results in less lenticular fragment manipulation and a decrease in the total energy required to extract the cataract. All of this is coupled with highly detailed coherence tomographical imaging. The benefits of the laser include unparalleled accuracy in intraocular lens implant positioning. This is especially crucial for patients opting for multifocal and toric lens implants. Laser performed incisions are so unequivocal that the safety of surgery overall is improved.

Patients selecting the LensX experience for their cataract surgery arrive at the center and are dilated in normal fashion. They initially undergo the laser portion of the cataract procedure in a designated area of the center. Next , the surgical team moves the patient into the sterile operating room, were they are prepped and draped as per routine and the procedure is completed. Standard sedation and anesthesia is applied.

“It’s like drawing a circle freehand versus tracing one with a template,” says Dr. Rosselson. “You can make a pretty good circle on your own, but using a specialized device makes it better! I know that the incision made by the laser has exact architecture for a complete seal, that the capsular opening is completely round and ideally centered, and that the lens implant is precisely where I wanted it.”

The Hoffman Estates Surgery Center is the only facility in the Northwest suburbs making the LensX available to its surgeons and their patients. Dr Randy Epstein also has access to a LensX at Illinois Masonic Medical Center

Traditionally, presbyopia, which happens to all of us as we age, has always meant glasses for clear reading vision. It's a condition not even correctable by laser vision correction. Luckily, there is an option. Refractive lens exchange allows patients a clear alternative to reading glasses and is capable of reducing or eliminating presbyopia by using an advanced multifocal intraocular lens.

Keratoconus describes a cornea that weakens as collagen fibers deteriorate, causing the cornea to adapt a cone-like shape. Keratoconus can cause blurred vision, light sensitivity, glares, and decreased night vision. In its early stages, keratoconus may be treated with the use of prescription glasses or contact lenses. Keratoconus is also one of the most common reasons for corneal transplant, and one of the most successful.

It's estimated that a million or more Americans have glaucoma and don't even know it. People with glaucoma often do not experience any symptoms until they begin losing their peripheral vision. One of the scariest things about glaucoma is that it usually has no symptoms in the early stages, earning glaucoma the name "silent thief of sight." Anyone can be at risk, so it's important to have your vision regularly examined.
