Cataract surgery is one of the most common procedures performed. It is typically an outpatient procedure requiring only a small amount of time and most patients are generally able to return to their daily activities shortly after their cataract surgery.
With their expert approach to cataract surgery their patients experience dramatic improvement in both their vision and their quality of life.
Cataract surgery has had a major technical advancement develop over the past few years. In 2012, the femtosecond laser bladeless cataract procedure was FDA approved. Wilmington Eye now utilizes the most technologically advanced option for cataract surgery—Alcon’s LenSx® laser. The LenSx femtosecond laser revolutionizes the way cataract surgery is performed.
Unlike traditional cataract surgery, where the surgeon manually makes the corneal incision with a blade, manually creates the opening in the front of the capsular bag, and manually divides the cataract with the ultrasonic probe, in bladeless laser cataract surgery, the LenSx laser automates these challenging steps of cataract surgery in a personalized protocol.
Your surgeon combines the LenSx laser with real-time image-guided features to create small incisions with a higher degree of precision. Your astigmatism can be accurately treated with this technology at the same time the cataract is removed! Femtosecond laser uses light energy to open and soften the cataract in a predictable manner
The LenSx laser is an advanced, precision-based technology that operates with unmatched accuracy and computer control, helping your surgeon customize the procedure for your eyes. It is the most technologically advanced option for cataract patients to be developed in the past decade. Choosing femtosecond laser-assisted refractive cataract surgery can provide the benefits of a blade-free approach and a full range of vision when combined with a multifocal lens implant
Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness in developed countries. In the U.S., it affects over 2.5 million people and is associated with blindness in more than 130,000 cases. Wilmington Eye is committed to ensuring that their patients are spared this serious disease whenever possible. Their glaucoma specialist was the area’s first full-time fellowship-trained glaucoma surgeon.
Pediatric Ophthalmology is one of the most important services the experienced physicians at Eye Associates of Wilmington provide. This is reflected in their dedication to detecting potentially troubling vision problems as early as possible. In addition, their team of doctors includes the only fellowship-trained pediatric ophthalmology specialist in the area.
Hooks Systems, who provide their IT RemoteCare technology support services for all of the Wilmington Eye offices, recently upgraded the technology at the practice with the latest in Microsoft virtualization technology including new Windows host Servers.
Hooks also provides 24 x 7 network and security monitoring and around-the-clock remote helpdesk support. These services ensure that Wilmington Eye remains compliant with HiPAA regulations and operating at maximum efficiency.
