Laser cataract surgery is performed at Baltimore Washington Eye Center by cataract surgeons Arturo Betancourt, M.D., F.A.C.S and Brad Spagnolo, M.D., F.A.C.S. for patients from throughout greater Baltimore and Washington. D.C. area. The Baltimore Washington Eye Surgery Center offers laser cataract surgery with the LenSx® Femtosecond Laser as one of the most common types of eye surgery we perform. Although cataract surgery offers cataract patients a quick visual recovery with minimal if any discomfort or downtime, it is still quite complex and requires considerable surgical skill in order to perform the great number of manually delivered steps. By using femtosecond laser for cataract surgery, Drs. Betancourt and Spagnolo are able to deliver a number of the manual skill intensive steps of cataract surgery in a safe, more precise, and gentler manner, further making the visual recovery and return to normal activities even faster and more convenient for our patients.
