• Is laser surgery better for my cataract type?


    Question:

    For surgery fixing a posterior subcapsular cataract, does laser cataract surgery offer benefits over traditional cataract surgery?


    Answer:

    Laser assisted cataract surgery and conventional cataract surgery are highly successful methods for treating, generally, all types of cataracts. Studies suggest that clinical outcomes are no different when comparing different surgical approaches. Speak with your ophthalmologist about what approach would be best for you.
