The LenSx Laser:
Putting the Future in Motion
The LenSx Laser is “Putting the Future in Motion.” A technologically advanced procedure, LenSx Laser Refractive Cataract Surgery offers a new level of precision and reproducibility in ophthalmic surgery. The additional steps performed by the Laser to align the capsular and corneal incisions in three dimensions are performed to optimize alignment of capsulotomy and corneal incisions, which signifies a bold leap forward in cataract surgery. The first femtosecond laser cleared for use in cataract surgery, it brings image-guided computer precision to refractive cataract surgeons. The Alcon laser uses a high-repetition rate femtosecond laser source for precise and customizable incisions for cataract refractive procedures. The LenSx also is designed to produce excellent primary and secondary corneal incisions on three planes. The benefits include precise and customizable self-sealing incisions for multiple lens types, pristine capsulotomies, wide power range control and state of the art optical coherence tomography (OCT) technology for precision guidance.
The LenSx Laser provides the surgeon with well-known benefits of femtosecond technology-micron level precision, accuracy and predictability. It is designed to perform many of the challenges of traditional, manually executed cataract surgery with computer precision. It uses focused femtosecond laser pulses to create incisions in the lens capsule, crystalline lens and the cornea. This results in treatments that are tailored to a surgeon’s specifications and deliver a remarkable degree of accuracy. Capsulotomy, lens fragmentation and all corneal incisions are created with the image-guided surgeon control.

Optimize the surgery experience
The LenSx Laser brings a new level of precision to these surgical steps through a number of high-tech features:
- Real-time video imaging with integrated OCT. Provides three-dimensional visualization of the entire anterior segment during docking, planning, and procedure.
- Curved patient interface. Designed for patient comfort, ease of use, and optimal laser performance.
- Intuitive touch screen graphic user interface. Allows each step of the procedure to be easily planned, customized, and executed.
- True image-guided surgical planning. Enables the surgeon to precisely program the size, shape, and location of each incision. Ensures clean, precise incisions of any shape, at every depth. Utilizes variable spot size and variable laser energy for optimized tissue interaction
Achieve Laser Accuracy
The LenSx Laser is designed to bring a new level of accuracy and reproducibility to refractive cataract surgery. Early proponents of the system report that, however accurate their manual procedures seemed in the past, they see measurable improvements when using the LenSx Laser.
The LenSx Laser can perform anterior capsulotomy, lens fragmentation, and all corneal incisions with tremendous reproducibility. The system performs surgery according to your preferences, extending your expertise with laser precision. From clean three-plane corneal incisions to customized fragmentation patterns, you can create predictable cuts that carry through subsequent steps of refractive cataract surgery.
Laser Refractive Cataract Surgery Has Arrived – Designed to deliver the precision of a femtosecond laser to Refractive Cataract Surgery, the LenSx Laser is Putting the Future in Motion:
- Automates some of the most challenging aspects of traditional cataract surgery
- Provides image-guided surgeon control to perform capsulotomy, lens fragmentation and all corneal incisions with consummate accuracy
- Offers a truly premium laser experience for Refractive Cataract Surgery patients
Customized Precision – Bringing a new level of customization to cataract surgery, the LenSx Laser allows the surgeon to confirm all surgical parameters and quickly and easily make any required adjustments before proceeding with the laser treatment:
- Size and location of the capsulotomy
- Lens fragmentation pattern, shape and location
- Size, location and shape of all arcuate cuts/corneal incisions including:
-Single and multiple-plane incisions, Full and partial thickness incisions
Advanced Imaging – With the LenSx
Laser, surgeons can monitor the entire anterior segment throughout the procedure using:
- A high-resolution video microscope for real-time imaging
- An integrated, large-range Optical Coherence Tomographer (OCT) for three-dimensional visualization
The LenSx Laser allows the surgeon to precisely program key surgical steps:
- Scans of the anterior capsule are efficiently captured and presented for precise placement of the anterior capsulotomy
- Next, the surgeon programs the precise location and shape of the fragmentation pattern with OCT visualization of the entire lens thickness
- Finally, corneal OCT images are used to program precise single or multiple-plane arcuate cuts/incisions at the required corneal thickness
Anterior Capsulotomy Diameter
Anterior capsulotomy size has been shown to impact the effective lens position post-operatively, a key parameter in IOL power calculations. Anterior capsulotomy with the Alcon LenSx Laser provides accurate and reproducible capsulotomy diameters not routinely achievable with manual techniques.
Femtosecond Laser Corneal Incisions
Incisions with the Alcon LenSx Laser provide accurate and reproducible corneal incisions with complete flexibility. This allows the surgeon to customize incision width and architecture for enhanced surgical performance.
