Dr. Jeffrey T. Starkey Now Offers Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery with CATALYS

Dr. Starkey
is pleased to now offer patients femtosecond assisted laser cataract surgery with the CATALYS Precision Laser System. Using CATALYS, Dr.Starkey can provide a gentle, hightly customized cataract procedure with precision not achievable with traditional manual techniques.

What is CATALYS?
Developed by Silicon Valley-based OpticMedica Corp., CATALYS is a new FDA market cleared medical device that features a state of the art laser, advanced 3D imaging, and many other innovative features that can bring numerous benefits to our patients.

How does it work and what are the steps?
Every eye has a unique size and shape. CATALYS' advanced 3D imaging technology builds a 3D map of each eye and tailors the treatment to that map. This enables Dr.Starkey to create a customized treatment plan that matches the uniqueness of each eye.

Next, Dr.Starkey uses CATALYS to create a circular opening for accessing and removing the cataract. Clinical studies have shown that this opening is approximately 10 times more accurate when performed with CATALYS than what is achievable by hand. CATALYS then softens and breaks up the hard cataract into tiny pieces, allowing for gentler, easier cataract removal.

Depending on the patient's pre-operative vision and desired visual result, Dr.Starkey may also recommend a tailored treatment plan that would reduce astigmatism by creating ultra-precise laser incisions in the cornea. This tailored treatment may reduce a patient's need for glasses or contacts after surgery.
