What is a Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery?
Newsom Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery technique offers qualified patients the opportunity to experience cataract surgery without the bladed tools traditionally used to create the necessary surgical micro-incisions. Newsom Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery technique utilizes femtosecond laser technology for the creation of those same incisions.
Dr. Newsom is now sharing his groundbreaking technique with his peers in the ophthalmology community. He has published educational materials documenting his technique through the American Academy of Ophthalmology’s (www.aao.org) news and continuing education site, to over 15,000 ophthalmologists nationwide. Newsom states, “The response to our technique has been overwhelming and we now have surgeons from around the country asking us how they can introduce laser cataract surgery in their own practices.” Newsom continues, “It’s encouraging to see that our hard work in perfecting this technology is being validated as the ophthalmology community at large takes an interest in our laser cataract procedure”.
