The Catalys Laser System is a state-of-the-art laser that makes optimal treatment outcomes possible during cataract surgery. It improves on our already impressive cataract removal techniques, by allowing our doctors to plan and execute every step of cataract surgery with a heightened level of precision.

The Laser

The Catalys Precision Laser System is FDA-approved for performing the corneal incision, capsulotomy and lens fragmentation portions of laser cataract surgery. Additionally, it features a liquid optic interface that gently docks the laser to the eye and minimizes the risk of a rise in intraocular pressure during surgery.


  • Virtually no discomfort during the procedure
  • A gentler and easier way to remove cataracts
  • Reduced inflammation and a rapid recovery period
  • A customized procedure featuring advanced 3D imaging
  • A chance that you won’t need corrective lenses after surgery
  • Increase precision, particularly when compared to manual methods

The procedure

Laser cataract surgery with the Catalys Laser System will begin with Dr. Benjamin and his team using the device to create a 3D map of each eye. This map will guide your treatment approach and surgical steps, based on your eye’s unique size and shape. Additionally, this map ensures that your doctor operates on the appropriate areas of the eye, while leaving the rest of the structure untouched.

To begin the actual surgery, Dr. Benjamin will perform a capsulotomy to create precise corneal incisions in the clear capsule that naturally surrounds your eye’s lens. This is important, because it allows him to access and remove the cataract. The Catalys Laser is also helpful in directly addressing the cataract, as it allows your surgeon to break the cataract into smaller pieces using far less ultrasound energy. This may result in a faster recovery period. Once your cataract has been successfully removed, Dr. Benjamin and his team will manually implant your intraocular lens (IOL) before ending the procedure.

Your recovery

Following your cataract surgery with the Catalys Laser, you will most likely be able to return home immediately. During the first few days of recovery, it’s important to follow your aftercare instructions closely to maximize your results and minimize complications. For example, take your eye drops as prescribed, and don’t drive, swim or engage in rigorous activities. Although the healing time will vary depending on your unique circumstances, most patients notice their vison is improved within a few days.

Dr. Benjamin and his team will schedule a series of post-operative appointments with you so they can monitor your progress and ensure that you’re healing properly. These visits are extremely important to the health of your eyes, so be sure to keep them.

    I have had dry eyes for a quite sometime and had seen several physicians and got eye drops etc but not until I have seen  Dr. Benjamin I found how serious problem that it was. I had the most thorough and individual attention by Dr. Benjamin. He explained to me my problem and treatment options available. Dr. Benjamin and His staff  are very caring and they spend as much time with you as needed and one feels taken care of. I was given state of the art treatment for my dry eyes and my eyes went from feeling tired , red , scratchy and itchy to brilliantly glowing clear. Office is very serene and staff is attentive, pleasant and smiling. Dr. Benjamin is very down to earth and explains thoroughly that one understands what alis them. I will definitely  keep coming back for all my eye issues.

    I wish I had come to Dr. Benjamin years ago!!!

    I have been hopping around between 3 eye doctors in the last few years complaining of severe eye pain, redness - so bad I haven't been able to wear contacts for a year. Every other doctor made a diagnosis in 2 minutes, prescribed a few things and sent me on my way. Nothing helped and the doctors kept saying my eyes looked fine despite my symptoms. Finally I saw Dr. Benjamin, and he listened to my concerns from top to bottom and did tests the other doctors never did! He made a brand new diagnosis which finally makes sense and fits my symptoms. He spent almost an hour with me which is unbelievable. I am so impressed with this place, even the front desk and other staff were so friendly. I'm so relieved and am looking forward to making a recovery with Dr. Benjamin and eventually getting LASIK.
