What is Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery? Dr. Niki Silverstein Offers Cataract Surgery with the Femtosecond Laser

Niki A. Silverstein of Silverstein Eye in Chester, NJ offers cataract surgery using the Femtosecond laser. This state-of-the-art laser has long been used in ophthalmic surgery since 2001; it is the laser used for creating the flap in a LASIK procedure. Currently being used in cataract surgery, the laser replaces some of the manual cutting done by the surgeon. Lasers can offer precision and hence other benefits over traditional cataract surgery.
