Overland Park Eye Surgery Center

Our Technology

Our facility is equipped with the latest state-of-the-art equipment. Here is a glimpse into the exciting technology we utilize.

Alcon Infiniti and Bausch & Lomb Phaco systems

For phacoemulsification cataract surgery, we use both Alcon Infiniti and Baush & Lomb phacoemulsification systems. During phacoemulsification, the eye's internal lens is emulsified (the mixing of two unblendable liquids) with an ultrasonic handpiece, and aspirated from the eye. Aspirated fluids are replaced with irrigation of balanced salt solution, thus maintaining the anterior chamber, as well as cooling the handpiece.

Both systems have low POS (postocclusion surge) and vacuum to maintain flow. Minimizing POS and vacuum to maintain flow potentially are important in avoiding ocular damage and surgical complications.

Leica 820 Mircoscopes

For microscopes, we like to use Leica's 820 model. The Leica 820 surgical microscope features Leica’s M820 APO OptiChrome™ optics, which give the surgeon natural color, outstanding depth of focus, and higher contrast for maximum detail recognition.

Leica Microscopes provide outstanding image quality - higher contrast and higher resolution, more detail is visible resulting in better surgery.

Nidek YAG laser system

YAG lasers are used in ophthalmology to correct posterior capsular opacification, a condition that may occur after cataract surgery, and for peripheral iridotomy in patients with acute angle-closure glaucoma. We use Nidek's YAG laser because it offers the latest in innovative laser delivery and output technologies. Fast operation and ultra adjustability make the Nidek YAG Laser treatment system the finest available anywhere.
