ABC11's Laser Cataract Surgery Report

Kelly Eye Center

Practicing since 1988, Dr. Michael Kelly, Board Certified Ophthalmologist and Medical Director to the Kelly Eye Center, is proud to offer a center for sight, providing patients with quality eye care in a compassionate manner. Originally established in 2001, The Kelly Eye Center has given new sight to thousands of satisfied patients using the latest technology including laser cataract surgery, glaucoma treatments, laser vision correction, implantable contact lenses, and multi-focal implants.

Recently, Dr. Kelly performed the first laser assisted cataract surgeries in the triangle. This type of technology represents the future direction of cataract surgery and Dr. Kelly is very proud to be able to offer this exciting new technology to his patients.

As medical director, Dr. Kelly has always had a commitment to setting the standard for excellence in eyecare with leading edge technology and the LenSx laser is the next revolutionary step for cataract surgery. In non-laser cataract surgery, the surgeon makes incisions and removes the cataract lens using traditional surgical instruments and blades. The Lensx(TM) laser performs several of the most critical steps of the surgical process with an image guided femtosecond laser. Using real time high resolution imaging of the eye, the computer precisely helps the surgeon design a customized procedure and then, visualizes and performs the procedure on command from the surgeon. We invite you to watch a video comparison of traditional cataract surgery and laser cataract surgery. The procedure takes only seconds and is still performed on an outpatient basis. You will enjoy a bladeless, advanced procedure in a comfortable, relaxed setting and a personalized surgical experience. Call our office to discuss your questions, concerns or to schedule your personal consultation.
