Our advanced LenSx® femtosecond laser system offers better outcomes because it is based on computerized precision-controlled equipment, eliminating the possibility of human error. In the skilled hands of Dr. Lindahl, these tools allow precise and customized treatment, with rapid healing and recovery.
Traditional cataract surgery has been performed for years by making a micro incision at or near the cornea and gently removing the cloudy lens using high-energy sound waves. While this method is still quite effective, Rochester Eye & Laser Center is proud to offer another method -- the most advanced technology for cataract surgery using lasers.
Dr. Lindahl, a Rochester native, has dedicated his professional life to clearly better eye health care for his patients. He has over 15 years experience with Cataract, Laser and Refractive Surgery, including LASIK, and Conductive Keratoplasty (CK).

One of the safest and most common medical procedures, cataract surgery is performed on 3 million patients annually. It takes between 15 and 30 minutes per eye. You can expect to feel no pain during the surgery, and usually only mild discomfort afterward
You may return to normal activity the day after surgery. We will schedule a series of post-operative visits to closely monitor your progress. During the first two weeks, you will need to use eye-drops, and you may need to place limits certain activity like swimming.
