Technology Continues to Advance Eye Surgery
Since eye surgery was first performed, it has been one of the most technologically driven fields in all of medicine.That trend shows no sign of slowing.New software is currently being developed that allows eye surgeons to learn how to perform cataract surgery using a computer program. A college student, Matt Harris, is the brain behind the new technology. He has spent his summer break so far testing the software to get it ready to train surgeons. When it is finished, it will be able to simulate some of the difficulties that can occur in an eye surgery procedure and teach surgeons how to handle it in a simulated environment where they can rerun it and try it again if there's a problem. Until the program is refined, be sure to get a qualified eye surgeon with the experience needed to complete the surgery without problems. For example, Carter Eye Center in Philadelphia, has reputable surgeons to perform your surgery. To find a surgeon nearer to you visit the LASIK Directory.
