Bay Area Eye Surgeon, Mark R. Mandel, MD, offers the latest in customizable and predictable laser cataract surgery with the LenSx laser

HAYWARD, Calif., March 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The LenSx femtosecond laser revolutionizes the way cataract surgery is performed.  Mark R. Mandel, MD, of Optima Eye Center, says, "Upon FDA approval, it was an exciting privilege to be one of the first practices in the Bay Area to offer the future of laser cataract surgery, and now, a year later, with so many happy patients, we know we made the right choice with the LenSx laser."

The LenSx laser automates the challenging steps of traditional cataract surgery. While, in traditional cataract surgery, a manual blade is used to create incisions, Dr. Mandel combines the LenSx laser with real-time image guided features to create small incisions with a higher degree of precision.  The femtosecond laser then uses light to open and soften the cataract in a predictable manner. This allows the surgeon to use less ultrasound energy to remove the cataract, which is safer for the patient. Safety and precision are the advantages of LenSx surgery.

Choosing femtosecond laser-assisted refractive cataract surgery can provide the benefits of a blade-free approach and a full range of vision when combined with a high technology, multifocal lens implant.  For patients with astigmatism who seek freedom from spectacles, the LenSx laser is a precise way to treat astigmatism and provide an enhanced quality of vision.

Today's active lifestyles demand a higher degree of freedom from glasses and contacts. Bladeless cataract surgery with optimum lens implant selection will improve quality of life and allow for a full range of vision to meet your lifestyle.

When Katherine Harano, O.D., a well-known East Bay optometrist, realized she was getting a cataract she wanted to have the latest technology refractive cataract surgery to improve her vision. She consulted Mark R. Mandel, MD.

"I've been sending my patients to Dr. Mandel for over 20 years. He is one of the only doctors with the latest laser and ultrasound technology for cataract surgery. However, I never realized how quick, easy and painless cataract surgery could be using this new technology.  I am amazed at how crisp and clear my vision is and how brilliant the colors are."

Optima Eye Center was the first ambulatory surgery center to be certified by Medicare in the United States in 1982. It has been in continuous operation since that time under the direction of Mark R. Mandel, MD.  A fellowship trained refractive, cataract and corneal specialist, Dr. Mandel is known as the "Doctor's Doctor" in that more physicians, surgeons and eye specialists select him to perform surgery on themselves and their family members than any other eye surgeon in Northern California. In addition to Dr. Mandel, Optima Eye Center provides subspecialty ophthalmic care by fellowship- trained specialist in the fields of glaucoma, retina and oculoplastics and orbital conditions. Offices are located in Hayward, Concord, Castro Valley and Santa Clara. To reach the office, call 877-210-2020.
