Chatswood Private Hospital Trials of LenSX

Chatswood Private Hospital has been conducting a trial of the Alcon LenSX Femtosecond LaserĀ for Cataract surgery. The hospitalĀ is committed to continually research and obtain the latest cutting edge technology that the industry has to offer to ensure that patients receive the highest and complete excellence in Ophthalmology.

The LenSX laser creates precise incisions in the eye, creating perfectly sized opening in the front of the lens and divides the cataract, all with a high precision image guided Femtosecond laser.

Trials of LenSX at Chatswood Private Hospital commenced in November 2017 and will continue during 2018 until a decision is to be made by the Board.

The LenSX laser is an advanced precision based technology that uses a computer controlled ad image guided high frequency. Its advantages include;

  • A bladeless procedure
  • More precise incisions
  • The incision will create more reproducible results with regards to astigmatism allowing better visual results, theoretically more robust and hence safer
  • A perfectly shaped and centred lens opening for more accurate IOL positioning and better visual results
  • A gentler procedure due to less manipulation of the eye
  • Ensuing a faster, kinder and gentler approach leading to quicker visual recovery and less damage to the delicate structures inside the eye
  • Enhanced procedure automation
  • Precise and customizable incision architecture
  • Pristine capsulotomies
  • Versatile fragmentation patterns
  • Simple and efficient one-piece patient interface
  • Innovative, high-definition OCT technology
