Patients choosing cataract surgery and want astigmatism correction simultanuously can now elect to have laser-assisted surgery with the femtosecond Laser. The Laser is an advanced technology, which enables surgeons to more precisely perform surgery aided by a computer-controlled laser. It is used to perform astigmatic keratotomy to help make incisions to manage corneal astigmatism.
