Dalcross Adventist Hospital Purchases World-Leading Equipment for Cataract Surgery

Dalcross Adventist Hospital is delighted to announce its recent purchase of one of the first Femtosecond Laser’s for cataract surgery in Australia and the first in an Australian university teaching hospital. With only 6 of these lasers currently in operation outside the USA, providing this service to Australian patients and ophthalmologists reaffirms Dalcross Eye Centre as a national leader in Ophthalmology Services.

 

This new technology uses a computer guided Femtosecond laser to perform the early stages of the cataract operation, cutting the tissues with a degree of precision impossible to match with manual techniques. Femtosecond laser technology has already been well proven in Refractive Laser Eye Surgery over the last 10 years with over 1 million procedures performed.
