The LenSx® Femtosecond Laser

The LenSx Femtosecond LaserThe LenSx® femtosecond laser utilizes a beam of laser light to create the necessary incisions for cataract surgery. An advanced computer-guidance system, controlled by Dr. Sayegh, directs the laser over the eye to provide the most precise and accurate results for each individual patient. This makes it possible for the successful combination of the surgeon’s skills with state-of-the-art technology to produce extraordinary results. The LenSx® femtosecond laser may also be able to better manage astigmatism than other types of cataract surgery.

iLASIK - Surgery

The first step in the LASIK procedure is creating the corneal flap. There are two ways to make this flap, a blade or a laser. With Dr. Sayegh flaps are created exclusively using the IntraLase™ FS laser. In research studies, patients prefer bladeless iLASIK over traditional LASIK. There are substantial benefits. The laser provides our surgeons with better control of the depth and architecture of the flap. The cut is also smoother, which results in faster healing.

Amazing experience. Dr. Sayegh makes you feel very comfortable. Laser cataract surgery went off without any problems. Opted for the panoptix lenses. No more glasses!! Extremely pleased. Thank you !!! Highly recommend.

Theresa Whelan

Dr. Sayegh is a very confident, professional, knowledgeable surgeon. He made cataract and LASIK surgery a positive experience. He explained the whole process thoroughly beforehand, which put me at ease. I had a PanOptix lens implanted and my restored vision is amazing! I was out of surgery quickly. Recovery was fast and I had no pain. If you are in need of cataract surgery you need to book an appointment with Dr Sayegh. He is definitely the best in the field! Dr. Sayegh, I can’t thank you enough for restoring my eyesight!

Laura Delacruz

Dr. Sayegh is a 5-Star surgeon, doctor and human being. I had both of my eyes repaired by Dr. Sayegh. I had cataract removal with lens implantation for corrective eyesight. The procedure is a little intimidating, but Dr. Sayegh, his office staff, and the operating room staff, explained step by step what was going to happen and how it would feel. I am extremely pleased with the outcome of my surgeries and would recommend Dr. Sayegh without hesitation.
