At Acme Hospital, we provide Feco and Laser Ophthalmic Procedures for various eye conditions, especially cataracts. Cataracts are a common problem that causes the lens of the eye to become cloudy and impair vision. They can affect anyone, but are more common in older people. If left untreated, cataracts can lead to blindness.
Fortunately, cataract surgery can restore your vision and improve your quality of life. There are different types of cataract surgery, but the most common ones are Feco and Laser Ophthalmic Procedures. These are both minimally invasive techniques that use advanced technology to remove the cataract and replace it with an artificial lens.
Feco stands for phacoemulsification, which is a procedure that uses ultrasonic waves to break up the cataract into tiny pieces, which are then suctioned out of the eye with a vacuum1. The procedure is completed by replacing the damaged lens with an artificial one. Feco is a safe and effective way to treat cataracts, and it has many benefits, such as:
- It requires only a small incision in the cornea, which heals quickly and reduces the risk of infection or complications.
- It allows for faster recovery and shorter hospital stay.
- It preserves the natural shape and function of the eye.
- It offers better visual outcomes and fewer side effects than traditional cataract surgery
Laser Ophthalmic Procedures stands for femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS), which is a newer technique that uses a laser to cut the cornea and remove the lens3. The laser can also create precise incisions in the cornea to correct astigmatism. The procedure is completed by replacing the damaged lens with an artificial one. Laser Ophthalmic Procedures is also a safe and effective way to treat cataracts, and it has some advantages over Feco, such as:
- It offers more accuracy and consistency in creating tissue planes for wounds, capsulotomies, and nuclear fragmentation.
- It reduces the amount of ultrasound energy needed to remove the cataract, which can protect the corneal endothelium and reduce inflammation.
- It can improve patient outcomes with presbyopia correcting intraocular lenses (IOLs), which can reduce or eliminate the need for glasses after surgery
