Laser Cataract Surgery

Laser cataract surgery in Houston is now a reality and available at Slade & Baker Vision Center. Dr. Stephen G. Slade performed the first laser cataract surgery in the United States on February 26, 2010 with the LenSx® femtosecond laser. Since the early 1970’s cataract surgeons have pursued better cataract outcomes by incorporating ultrasonic technology (phacoemulsification) to break up and remove cataracts. Although cataract surgery is considered to be one of the safest and most successful procedures performed in medicine today, laser cataract surgery improves the precision of many of the key surgical steps to provide even better outcomes and potentially make cataract surgery even safer.

Here is our crew for the first ever laser cataract surgery patients in the US. As you can see, it was a real production with many technicians, laser physicists, nurses, doctors, and our wonderful staff!

Crew for 1st ever cataract surgery patients in the US.

If your vision is getting cloudy, if you are loosing your color perception or you are having trouble seeing at night, you may be in the early stages of developing cataracts. Cataracts are a normal part of the aging process and it is said that most people will develop cataracts if they live long enough. A cataract is the clouding of the natural lens inside the eye that is normally transparent. Learn More. The good news is that you are experiencing cataracts at a time in the evolution of cataract surgery when tremendous technological advances are making the procedure better with laser cataract surgery. Your visual outcome will improve with premium replacement (IOLs) such as the AcrySof® ReSTOR® IQ IOL, the Tecnis® Multifocal IOL, or the accommodating Crystalens®.
