LenSx Custom Cataract System Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

The nine physicians of The Eye Center of North Florida are the group of doctors that are responsible for the introduction of this new technology into our area. There are only 25 of these lasers in the world, 15 in the nation, and The Eye Center is the first practice to have one in the state of Florida. Dr. Bret Fisher and Dr. Paul Garland, both surgeons at The Eye Center, look forward to using this new technology for their patients and revolutionizing the way cataract surgery is performed.

On Monday, October 3, 2011, The Eye Center of North Florida will be introducing the latest technological advancement in cataract surgery. The LenSx Custom Cataract System is a fully integrated femtosecond laser that allows bladeless cataract surgery. There are currently 25 LenSx Lasers in the world, with only a handful in the Nation. The Eye Center will have the first one in Florida and all southern states, with the exception of Charleston S.C.

There have not been advancements in cataract surgery – the most performed surgery in the world- in over 20 years. Dr. Paul Garland and Dr. Bret Fisher will be the surgeons who will work with the new machine to perform custom laser cataract surgery.

On Monday, October 3rd, we would love to have media support to welcome the LenSx into the state of Florida by joining us for a Chamber Ribbon Cutting and Surgery Center Open House from 11 am to 1 pm. (lunch provided) 2500 MLK Jr. Blvd – Surgery Center entrance.
