Dr. Siegel first to offer Refractive Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery

Dr. Mark S. Siegel, MD of Sea Island Ophthalmology was the first eye surgeon in the Northern Beaufort County area to begin offering ReLACS™, Refractive Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery, to his patients. “I have been performing cataract surgery in the local area for many years and am excited to begin offering the femtosecond laser for cataract removal. This new technology provides a more advanced manner by which to perform several steps of the procedure,” says Dr. Siegel. “Adoption of this technology is a testament to our dedication to offering the most advanced technology as an option for the patients in our community.”

The LenSx® femtosecond laser signifies a bold leap forward in cataract surgery by bringing image-guided computer precision to refractive cataract surgeons. The system performs surgery according to surgeon preferences, using focused laser pulses to create incisions in the lens capsule, crystalline lens and cornea. This results in treatments that are tailored to surgeon specifications and may deliver a remarkable degree of accuracy, thereby extending the surgeon’s expertise with laser precision. Surgeons utilizing this new technology will be able to create predictable openings that carry through subsequent steps of cataract surgery as it helps them deliver on a targeted refractive outcome.

“We are thrilled to be the first in the area to perform refractive cataract surgery, astigmatic correction and presbyopia correction utilizing this advancement in predictability and efficiency for patients throughout the Beaufort County area.”
