Dr. Labor was among the first Dallas/Fort Worth eye surgeons to perform femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) in keeping with his belief that our patients should have the best surgical advancements available. Previously approved for LASIK, the femtosecond laser significantly improved LASIK surgery precision. Today, that same laser-assisted technology is making cataract surgery smarter, faster, and better than ever.
Here’s how it works. In our FLACS surgery suite, Dr. Labor uses the advanced LENSAR Laser System to make tiny incisions in the cornea with femtosecond precision. These laser incisions are designed to correct astigmatism when indicated, allowing Dr. Labor to gently break apart using the LENSAR’s laser light technology, and effectively implant the artificial lens. Dr. Labor may also use the ORA System and Verion Image Guided System, which allows him to specifically customize each step of the procedure to your eye with greater accuracy.
As an early adopter of femtosecond technology for LASIK, Dr. Labor applies that experience and skill to every laser-assisted cataract procedure. This starts with a thorough examination to assure the procedure is the right option for you. Contact our Grapevine office at 817-410-2030 to learn more or set up an appointment.
