Bladeless division of cataract into smaller pieces requires less ultrasound energy for the total removal of the Cataract Surgery, enabling a faster post-op visual recovery.

A perfectly well-centred premium lens implant which corrects myopia, astigmatism and presbyopia (” Lao Hua”) can achieve total spectacle freedom to meet the demands of the modern cataract patient.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES? 

100% Bladeless Femtosecond laser Cataract Surgery Singapore  offers a paradigm shift in cataract surgery. Clinical evidence in support of the use of the technique is rapidly accumulating, and increased safety is a plus point.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) in modern cataract surgery out-performs a surgeon’s hand, reduce the chance of human errors, provide greater precision and reproducibility.

One month follow-up after Cataract  Surgery.

With the expert partnership of Dr Natasha Lim Eye Centre, NOVENA Bladeless Cataract Surgery and Eye Specialist Centre will be the first and only private clinic with our own in-house MOH-accredited Eye Ambulatory Surgery Centre that offers Precise Computerised CARL ZEISS CALLISTO ® Cataract Suite and 100% Bladeless Cataract Surgery from the minute a diagnosis is made to the finish of the cataract surgery journey:.

The  Computerized Refractive Cataract Suite provides computer guidance to intra-ocular lens implantation. It performs pre-operative measurements of intra-ocular lens implants using Optical Coherence Tomography imaging of the entire length of the eye for even greater accuracy.

It captures unique feature points and curvature gradients of the eyeball for use as reference points so that no more manual eye marking is necessary for precision lens implant alignment. This data is automatically transferred to the eyepiece of the ZEISS CALLISTO ® computer-assisted operating microscope for real-time active eye axis tracking throughout the surgery.

This is paired with our centre’s CATALYST ® Femtosecond Laser, an FDA-approved system, bringing both laser precision technology and computer-guided consistency to cataract surgery.

Treatment is fully customized to each individual’s eye, enabling better intra-ocular lens implant placements and the most accurate visual outcomes. These advantages are especially important when it comes to centration and alignment of the high-definition (HD), premium intraocular lens implants such as presbyopia-correcting multi-focal and the high definition (HD) mono-vision lens implants. It is also the most precise form of correction for cylinder axis in eyes that suffer from astigmatism.

Z ALIGN Toric Assistant defines the reference and target axes wholly under computer guidance and displays them on ZEISS CALLISTO ® screen and on the surgeon’s operating microscope’s eyepiece in high resolution, assisting the surgeon in the precise alignment of toric intraocular lens implants during cataract surgery.

We don’t have to touch the eye. The reference appears as an overlay by the ZEISS CALLISTO ® software. ZEISS CALLISTO ® continuously tracks the patient’s eye throughout surgery in high resolution to provide assistance overlays. This has been proven. It is a more precise method of alignment of the intraocular lens implant.

With patients appreciating the ability to customize their vision, incremental clinical advantages such as experiencing greater precision procedures and faster recovery periods and once again enjoying the vision they had in their 20s without glasses, it is no surprise that this innovative procedure is rapidly setting the new standards for modern cataract surgery.

For an all-in-one correction of myopia, astigmatism and presbyopia, Computer-Guided Multi-focal lens implantation ensures pristine lens centration and even better visual outcomes.

The main concern from patients presently is whether this technology is affordable or not.

Yes, it is coverable by Insurance and Medisave. Doctor’s fees and hospital facility fees vary greatly from a person– to– person, place– to– place. You will find some doctors performing traditional manual phacoemulsification who are charging more than some doctors performing 100% Bladeless Femtosecond Laser Cataract Surgery, and vice versa. For any surgical procedures, there are no fixed fees.

The issue of cost arises with any new technology and is always resolved. Whenever a superior technology emerges, it ultimately succeeds. NOVENA Bladeless Cataract Surgery & Eye Specialist Centre owns its Ambulatory

Surgery Centre Operating Facility, its own ZEISS computerized cataract suite for lens alignment and lens implantation, its own CATALYST ® Femtosecond Laser for 100% Bladeless Cataract Surgery and aims to make this technology affordable to the mass market. The private sector has had a reputation for being “expensive”.

The Centre’s mission is to deliver cutting edge technology with the best expertise and strike off exorbitant facility/machine fees as it controls its own pricing, instead of being dependent on third party hospital’s facility fees. For NOVENA Bladeless Cataract Surgery & Eye Specialist Centre, there will not be a huge difference in price between the traditional manual Phaco-emulsification and 100% Bladeless Femtosecond Laser Cataract Surgery.

We understand what the patients are looking for and their prime concerns. We only want to deliver the best and we want to make it affordable. Whilst cataract surgery is often associated with half a day of hospital stay with elaborate admission and discharge protocols,

NOVENA Bladeless Cataract Surgery Centre boasts a privately run MOH-accredited Ambulatory Surgery Centre IN– HOUSE that saves on time and mental anxiety of patients by completing their cataract surgeries within 15 minutes in an environment of relaxation and comfort, without the need for intravenous sedation or eye injection, enabling initial admission to final discharge time of 1 hour, and patients can make their own way home safely.

If I needed cataract surgery today, which method– manual or Bladeless Femtosecond Laser Cataract Surgery would I choose for my eyes? For me, there is only one choice.

I would select the Bladeless Femtosecond Laser. This is not debatable, it is a fact. Why not enjoy better safety and greater precision if I could. Bladeless Femtosecond Laser Cataract Surgery is the future of cataract surgery and the future is here.
