Kevin O’Brien ; Marketing director at Fichte Endl & Elmer Eyecare announced today that the practice is proud to be recieving the nations very first VICTUS laser. This laser is a unique piece of equipment manufactured in Germany for Bausch & Lomb. Not only will it be used for LASIK eye surgery, it will be used to perform some of the nations very first “LASER CATARCT SURGERY”. Contrary to popular belief, cataract surgery is not done with a laser, it is done with an ultrasonic handpeice. All of this is changing thanks to the VICTUS laser. This laser does a very important part of the cataract surgery and then the patient has the reminder of the procedure with the ultrasonic handpeice. The end result is the best possible visual outcome. Lasers have been used in ophthalmology for decades but this new technology is groundbreaking and very exciting .

This can mean less need for glasses, faster recovery times and a safer procedure.
