Stillwater, MN (PRWEB) August 02, 2011

Associated Eye Care is Minnesota’s first eye care practice, and one of the first nationwide, to offer its patients the LenSx® laser, a revolutionary new all-laser cataract surgery technology, the practice announced.

The LenSx laser is the latest innovation in cataract surgery, providing computer-controlled precision to Associated Eye Care surgeons, offering patients an advanced, bladeless and truly customizable experience.

“Laser refractive cataract surgery is clearly the most technologically advanced option for cataract patients,” said Dr. Stephen Lane, Medical Director at Associated Eye Care. “With the LenSx laser, we can offer our patients a truly premium experience with the precision and reliability of a laser for refractive cataract surgery,” Dr. Lane said.

Prior to the LenSx laser, many of the most important steps in cataract surgery were performed manually with a blade.

“I believe that laser refractive cataract surgery, as performed with the LenSx laser, is going to increase the safety of cataract removal and improve outcomes,” Dr. Lane said.

In addition to offering patients the most advanced technology available for this life-changing procedure, Dr. Lane said the practice has high expectations that cataract surgery with the LenSx laser will give more patients better spectacles-free vision.

For more information on the LenSx laser, Dr. Lane is available for interviews. Please contact Phil Jackson, Director of Refractive Services at Associated Eye Care for scheduling.

Associated Eye Care is a multi-specialty ophthalmology practice staffed by nine board-certified ophthalmologists and three licensed optometrists. Services offered include: routine eye exams; eyewear and contact lens fitting; pediatric eye care and pediatric eye surgery; glaucoma, retinal and vitreal disease treatments and surgery; cataract and corneal surgery, and laser vision correction procedures.
