The landscape of ophthalmic surgery has been transformed by the Alcon Ingenuity Heads-Up Display, which is at the forefront of technological advancements. Offering a plethora of advantages for cataract surgery, it's no surprise that leading surgeons are endorsing its benefits.
For the eye to focus optimally, two critical structures come into play: the cornea — the clear front surface of your eye, and the lens — nestled right behind your iris and pupil. A perfectly round cornea ensures sharp vision. Yet, in astigmatism, the cornea deviates from its ideal symmetrical round shape, leading to vision distortion.
Astigmatism, in its simplest form, is an imperfection in the curvature of the cornea or lens, causing blurred or distorted vision. But not all astigmatisms are created equal. Among the various types, mixed astigmatism stands out as particularly challenging to correct.
The treatment of cataracts has come a long way since the use of ultrasound technology, and it has now taken a revolutionary step forward with the advent of laser surgery. The femtosecond laser offers a more precise, quiet, and vibration-free approach, targeting an affected area as small as 5 microns without impacting the surrounding eye tissue.
