PressRelease – Cataract surgery requires lens removal and Baltimore Washington Eye Center has made the commitment to having the technology best suited for optimum outcomes by incorporating The Alcon CENTURION Vision System to perform that portion of the surgery for our patients.
Baltimore, MD – “Our ongoing commitment to providing world class cataract surgery to Baltimore and D.C. patients was recently demonstrated by incorporating the Alcon LensSx Femtosecond Laser into our eye surgery center so that our cataract surgeons can offer patients laser cataract surgery and lens implants in a more precise, gentle and reproducible cataract operation. Now, we’re taking the next step to further refine safety and outcomes for patients by using the Alcon CENTURION Vision System to perform the actual lens removal portion of the surgery,” explained Arturo Betancourt, M.D., Medical Director and Cataract Surgeon at Baltimore Washington Eye Center.
Corneal Specialist and Cataract Surgeon Brad Spagnolo, M.D. further explained, “This is the only lens removal system to utilize Active Fluidics which is an innovation that allows us to create and maintain a consistent and stable fluid environment inside the eye while performing the actual cataract removal or phacoemulsification portion of the procedure. Maintaining control over the fluid environment during every moment of the cataract procedure helps us to further improve safety and outcomes for our patients.”
The Baltimore Washington Eye Surgery Center is a comfortable, close to home ambulatory surgery center dedicated to bringing world class eye surgery to patients from the greater Baltimore and Washington, D.C. region. We are fully accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) and licensed by the State of Maryland and Medicare.
