NVISION Eye Centers Conducts First LENSAR Cataract Procedure in Douglas County, Ore.

World-Class Ophthalmology Center Provides Laser Technology Treatment to Patients Seeking Vision Correction Relief

ALISO VIEJO, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 13, 2015) - NVISION Eye Centers, a prominent national provider of state-of-the-art cataract and LASIK surgery, has brought the pioneering LENSAR cataract procedure to its acclaimed Weston Eye Center located in Roseburg, Oregon. On the forefront of medical eye treatment innovation, LENSAR brings an unprecedented level of precision, safety and superior outcomes for patients seeking complete relief from cataracts affecting their vision and quality of life. A cataract, according to the National Eye Institute, is a clouding of the lens in the eye that affects vision, and impacts 24.41 million individuals in the U.S. as of the latest 2010 statistics.

LENSAR delivers advanced technological capability to surgeons performing the most delicate and complex eye operations, through laser precision, which automates the most challenging, blade components of manual cataract surgery. With NVISION bringing the procedure to Weston Eye Center, the facility becomes the first in Douglas County, Ore. to offer the innovative procedure. 

Jon-Marc Weston, M.D, founder of Weston Eye Center, and an award-winning, board-certified eye physician and surgeon, received certification in using the LENSAR system, and successfully completed his first patient procedure on Sept. 2, 2015. Dr. Weston has already completed 16 additional laser-assisted cataract procedures in the month of September and is supremely impressed with its ability to deliver the best possible outcome for patients -- precision cataract surgery 100 percent of the time.

"To have this capability at Weston Eye Center means that more patients than ever before can experience restored and clear vision," said Dr. Weston of NVISION Eye Centers. "One of our focus specializations is cataract surgery, and this technology enhances our facility's already sterling reputation for providing the finest eye care offerings to our clients."

A proprietary and transformational medical tool, the LENSAR Laser System was developed by the LENSAR Company with emphasis on bringing the most advanced surgical options to eye surgeons. LENSAR works in two capacities, first by utilizing a unique, high-resolution, 3-D view (Augmented Reality™) of a patient's eye, allowing the doctor to specifically design treatment, and plan the cataract removal procedure on an individual basis. Second, the use of the laser technology allows the surgeon to precisely soften the cataract for safety and ease of removal, while preparing the most favorable conditions for the placement of the patient's new intraocular lens.

"Prior to the traditional removal of a cataract there are multiple steps: manual blade incision, manual Capsulotomy, and lens segmentation," said Dr. Weston. "The automation of these processes into one function with LENSAR allows for safer and better surgeries."

Patients receiving eye care treatment from NVISION can count on a team of doctors and medical staff second to none in their quality and approach to delivering the finest health outcomes. NVISION doctors are among the most distinguished, experienced and educated surgeons having trained more than 1,900 eye doctors throughout California, Nevada, Oregon and Arizona in laser vision correction.

"Doctors such as Jon-Marc Weston are the reason why so many patients count on NVISION for their eye health concerns," says James Pereyra, president of NVISION Eye Centers. "Bringing innovative procedures to all of our centers, as we did in Roseburg, Ore., will continue to be our goal."

"The surgery experience at Weston Eye Center was simply fantastic," says Shirley Byrd-Solem, who was one of the first 16 patients to undergo the laser-assisted procedure. "I cannot thank Dr. Weston and his staff enough for making my cataract removal easy and as stress-free as possible."
