Dr. Schumer and ReVision LASIK and Cataract Surgery, the Midwest’s renowned eye surgeon and elite ophthalmology practice, announced they are the first practice in Ohio to offer Laser Cataract Surgery with TrueVision 3D Surgical technology – a high-definition, real-time, stereoscopic microsurgery. TrueVision® 3D Surgical is the world leader in 3D visualization and guidance for microsurgery, combining 3D visualization and guidance software focused on improving accuracy, efficiency, and outcomes for both surgeons and patients.
According to the World Health Organization, there are about 600 million people who are 60 years old or older in the world today. Although cataracts may form for a number of reasons, the natural aging of the eye is the primary cause. Symptoms of a cataract include clouded, blurred or dimmed vision. Patients suffering from cataracts often curb lifestyles and activities to accommodate their decreasing visual acuteness. While cataracts cloud the natural clear lens in the eye, cataract surgery removes this cloudiness and replaces the natural lens with an intraocular lens (IOL). Prior to 10 years ago, everyone received an implanted lens, which allowed patients to see clearly at a distance, but only if they did not have astigmatism. Using the recently patent issued TrueVision® 3D Surgical computer-guided technology in coordination with an advanced femtosecond laser, ReVision now has the ability to fit cataract patients more precisely with a lens that can not only correct for astigmatism but also improve visual acuity for even the most active lifestyles all in a single surgical procedure.
“TrueVision considers computer-guided surgery and our intelligent applications a critical aspect of advanced cataract surgery to assist surgeons in delivering the highest quality patient outcomes,” said Forrest Fleming, TrueVision’s chief executive officer.
Until now, traditional cataract procedures required the use of a blade for corneal incisions. This procedure has worked well, but now there is a more precise option available. With the use of a femtosecond laser, surgeons at ReVision LASIK and Cataract Surgery can create incisions and reduce astigmatism without blades. These incisions are proven to be more accurate and precise. Combined with the experience of world class cataract surgeons, this procedure is safer and more predictable, with better visual outcomes.
