Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery

Halpin-Noll Eye Center is among the first in the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area to offer patients the new standard in precision cataract surgery with the CATALYS® Precision Laser System. Using CATALYS, the doctors can provide a gentle, highly customized cataract procedure with precision not achievable with traditional manual techniques.

Laser Cataract Surgery

What is CATALYS?

Developed by Silicon Valley-based OptiMedica 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 Halpin-Noll Eye Center 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 Halpin Noll Eye Center surgeons to create a customized treatment plan that matches the uniqueness of each eye.

Next, Halpin-Noll Eye Center surgeons use 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.1,2 CATALYS then softens and breaks up the hard cataract into tiny pieces, allowing for gentler, easier cataract removal.3
