    What Is Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery?

    Laser-assisted cataract surgery takes advantage of the precision of laser technology to assist your ophthalmologist. We will use lasers to map your eye, gather information and make exact incisions in your eye to remove the damaged lens. At this point, the procedure mirrors traditional cataract surgery to insert a new, artificial affected lens.

    LenSx Laser

    Calvert Ophthalmology Center is very proud and excited to bring to Christian County the combination of the most advanced technology in laser cataract surgery and lens implant accuracy that results in the best possible vision correction for distance, near or both.
     
    Dr. Calvert is the first to perform this type of cataract surgery at JSASC. Just as patients have had options when it comes to selecting the type of lens implant for cataract surgery, they also have the option of choosing the technology that’s used to perform the procedure — surgery performed by hand or with the assistance of laser technology.

    Cosmetic and Reconstructive Eyelid Surgery

    There are several scenarios where you would need to undertake eyelid reconstruction surgery. Trauma to your eyelids or tumor excision are two common examples. Many superficial defects can heal naturally over time with normal care procedures. However, more serious damage or blemishing can only be effectively addressed by professional surgical methods.

    What Is Blepharoplasty?

    Blepharoplasty is a type of eyelid surgery commonly referred to as an eye lift. This surgery is targeted to patients who have loose, baggy skin around their eyes. Although we often perform this surgery for cosmetic reasons, it is also done when the skin interferes with our patient’s vision.

    Things Your Surgeon Will Consider

    ​There are many considerations that your surgeon will weigh before recommending a specific reconstructive procedure. Important factors include the location, size and age of the eyelid defect as well as blood supply to the area and the integrity of the local tissues. These and other issues will inform your surgeon’s course of action which may focus on your eyelid’s vertical tension, horizontal tension or canthal fixation.
