Femtosecond Cataract Laser

Hi, my mother is 50 years old, and she needs a cataract surgery to be done. I am someone who never wore glasses and never had to go to an eye doctor, so I don't know anything about cataract surgery. Her eye doctor said that she would be getting a Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery with the LenSx femtosecond laser surgery. I have never heard of anything like that before. Could someone please tell me, if it’s the usual procedure for treating cataract? Is the recovery slow? Is there anything to be careful about before the surgery? Thanks in advance.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. That surgery is a very good, Minimal invasive and uptodate with least possible side effects. You need not to worry about it. Your mother will be up on your feet within a few hours and she will be good as new. Let her go from allergist take care of this cataract and is easily manageable.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
