Alcon Lens Laser

Home / Care Centres / Our Technology / Alcon Lens Laser

The Alcon Lens Laser is a cutting-edge technology used in ophthalmology for precise and automated cataract surgery. It assists surgeons in creating precise incisions and performing lens fragmentation, resulting in improved surgical outcomes and reduced surgical time for patients.

  • Features
  • Treatment and Procedure
  1. Improved graphical user interface offers surgeons an intuitive, efficient workflow when performing personalized topography-guided LASIK procedures
  2. Modernized hardware delivers ergonomic features and new equipment colour offering allows for surgeon customization
  3. Endoscopic Camera: The system includes an endoscopic camera that provides a magnified, high-resolution view of the surgical field. This allows the surgeon to visualize the area in detail, even in hard-to-reach locations.
  4. Enhancements reinforce Alcon’s position as the leader in refractive surgery and its ongoing commitment to advancing surgical laser vision correction technology
  5. Ergonomic additions to improve surgeon comfort and efficiency, such as a heads-up display for the surgeon’s dominant eye and a clearly arranged control panel
  6. Higher-contrast GUI and a back-lit keyboard to optimize surgeon comfort while working in the dim lighting that is common in procedure rooms
  7. Updates to the laser designed to reduce the procedure time, maximize patient comfort and mitigate increases in intraocular pressure
  8. New key switch and emergency laser emission stop switch to allow the surgeon to turn the laser system on/off and shut down the device immediately in case of an emergency

It is used for cataract surgery.
Cataract surgery using the Alcon LenSx Laser aims to enhance precision, accuracy, and reproducibility in various steps of the procedure, potentially leading to optimized outcomes

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    What is robotic surgery?

    Robotic surgery is a minimally invasive surgical approach that utilizes robotic systems to assist surgeons in performing procedures with enhanced precision, control, and visualization. The robotic system consists of a surgeon console, robotic arms, and specialized instruments.

    How does robotic surgery work?

    During robotic surgery, the surgeon sits at the console and operates robotic arms that hold and manipulate surgical instruments. The surgeon's movements are translated into precise movements of the robotic arms, providing greater dexterity and range of motion compared to traditional laparoscopic surgery.

    What are the advantages of robotic surgery?

    Robotic surgery offers several advantages, including:

    • Enhanced precision: Robotic systems allow for precise movements and improved surgical accuracy.
    • 3D visualization: Surgeons have a high-definition, magnified, and 3D view of the surgical site, providing better visualization.
    • Increased dexterity: The robotic arms can rotate and bend in ways that mimic the human hand, allowing for intricate movements.
    • Reduced invasiveness: Smaller incisions result in less pain, reduced scarring, and faster recovery compared to open surgery.
    • Reduced blood loss: Robotic systems often offer better control over bleeding, resulting in decreased blood loss during surgery.

    What types of procedures can be performed using robotic surgery?

    Robotic surgery is used in various surgical specialties, including urology, gynaecology, general surgery, thoracic surgery, and colorectal surgery. Common procedures include prostatectomy, hysterectomy, hernia repair, and lung lobectomy.

    Is robotic surgery safe?

    Robotic surgery has a proven safety record and is considered safe when performed by experienced surgeons. Like any surgical procedure, there are risks involved, but the benefits of reduced pain, faster recovery, and improved outcomes often outweigh the potential risks.

    How long does recovery take after robotic surgery?

    Recovery time varies depending on the procedure and the patient. In general, robotic surgery offers faster recovery compared to traditional open surgery. Patients may experience shorter hospital stays, reduced pain, and quicker return to normal activities.

    Is robotic surgery covered by insurance?

    Robotic surgery is generally covered by insurance, but coverage may vary depending on your specific insurance plan. It's advisable to check with your insurance provider to determine the extent of coverage for robotic surgical procedures.

    Can all patients undergo robotic surgery?

    Not all patients are suitable candidates for robotic surgery. The decision to undergo robotic surgery depends on several factors, including the patient's overall health, the complexity of the procedure, and the surgeon's expertise. A consultation with a surgeon can help determine if robotic surgery is appropriate for you.

    Are all surgeons trained to perform robotic surgery?

    Surgeons require specialized training to perform robotic surgery. They undergo specific certification and training programs to gain proficiency in operating the robotic systems. It's important to choose a surgeon who is experienced and trained in robotic surgery for optimal outcomes.

    What are the potential limitations of robotic surgery?

    Robotic surgery has limitations, including the need for specialized equipment and infrastructure, longer setup time, and increased costs compared to traditional surgery. Additionally, not all procedures may be suitable for robotic surgery, and some complex cases may still require open surgery.
