lynnIf you are considering cataract surgery, you should read this article (and click “Read more”) to learn about another of our amazing patients, Lynn Chaney – through her own words and video – and how Laser-Assisted Cataract surgery changed her life.

In Lynn’s words, she says her reaction the morning after her surgery was this:  “There’s no way to explain it.  Everything’s so bright and so clear!”  Riding her Harley Davidson with her husband, Leon, is Lynn’s passion – now she can see everything during their rides so much clearer…without glasses. Laser-assisted cataract surgery with multi focal lens changed her world.  To watch Lynn’s video – along with many of our other LAC and traditional cataract surgery patients – click here.

 

Cataracts, the leading cause of preventable blindness, develop when the eye’s lens becomes cloudy which impairs vision.  Surgery to remove the old lens and replace it with a new, clear lens is an effective method for improving poor eyesight due to cataract development.

South Georgia Eye Partners’ own Dr. Scott Petermann performs LenSx® – a blade-free, laser-assisted cataract surgery which is the latest in cataract correction procedures.

This technology is an advanced alternative to traditional cataract surgery, which utilizes surgical blades.  LenSx® provides the surgeon with micron-level precision and improved predictability.  The procedure is tailored to the surgeon’s specifications and delivers a remarkable degree of accuracy.  By creating the incisions and fragmenting the clouded lens with LenSx®, the surgeon creates a precise opening for the new lens to be optimally positioned.

SGEP performs cataract surgery with LenSx® as an outpatient procedure at South Georgia Medical Center in Valdosta.  Pre-op and post-op visits for South Georgia Eye Partners patients can be scheduled in Valdosta, Tifton, and Douglas.  Our South Georgia/North Florida Eye Partners patients can schedule their visits at our Madison location.  To learn more, click here.
