Maloney Vision Institute is now offering a revolutionary technology—Laser Cataract Surgery—the most advanced, precise and gentle method of lens surgery. Laser Cataract Surgery uses the femtosecond laser to do many of the steps currently performed by hand. It is bladeless, all computer controlled and programmed by expert Los Angeles Cataract Surgeon, Dr. Robert Maloney.
Cataracts, clouding of the natural lens of the eye, are the leading cause of vision loss in adults age 55 and older, and the leading cause of blindness worldwide, according to the National Institutes of Health. During non-laser cataract surgery, the patient’s natural lens of the eye is removed and replaced with an artificial lens implant using traditional surgical implements and blades. Laser Cataract Surgery allows Dr. Maloney to perform the cataract surgery without blades of any kind. Dr. Robert Maloney is a pioneer in the field of eye surgery and is widely recognized as providing the best cataract surgery Los Angeles has to offer.
