The Alcon LenSx® Laser is a fully-integrated, image-guided femtosecond laser designed specifically for refractive cataract surgery. It automates many of the most challenging steps of cataract surgery using a customizable 3-D surgical platform. The LenSx Laser is used in more cataract surgeries than any other laser.1
Sightpath customers receive, at no additional cost, access to a variety of customizable materials that were produced by and in consultation with ophthalmic marketing professionals specifically for Sightpath MoFe customers. On the Sightpath Resource Library you will find:
- Operational and regulatory instruction with sample forms
- Service pricing models and video instruction

MoFe customers may choose to add Sightpath’s traditional cataract service, which includes advanced equipment. We offer next-generation phacoemulsification systems including the Alcon Centurion, Johnson & Johnson Vision Signature and Bausch&Lomb Stellaris. Also, YAG lasers from Ellex and Nidek are available to help you provide superior patient outcomes. With our traditional cataract service, Sightpath offers access to a Phaco device, board-certified CST, and all of the instruments, IOLs and supplies needed, including a backup Phaco system, to ensure a successful, productive surgery day.
The MoFe Stabilizer is Sightpath’s unique device designed for optimal patient head positioning. Not only can it help reduce movement, thus increasing the likelihood of a free-floating capsulotomy, the MoFe Stabilizer also elevates the neck to create an even plane for effective laser docking.
Let’s face it: getting new patients is expensive. Most ophthalmologists spend 2 to 4 percent of their net practice collections on marketing, with some practices spending upwards of 10 percent. If you’re going to dedicate time and resources to marketing, it’s important to be methodical about it. Below, we’ve outlined several steps to take when planning your marketing campaigns for 2018.
It’s that time of year again! ASCRS has released its annual clinical survey focusing on current trends and technologies in the ophthalmology field. This year, more than 1,100 ASCRS members answered key questions about cataract surgery, astigmatism management, presbyopia correction, ocular surface diseases, and other ophthalmic topics.
In the United States, nearly 42 percent of the population lives with myopia, and researchers estimate that number will only grow. Many of these people will turn to refractive surgery to correct their visual error – after all, LASIK is the most popular elective procedure in the world. If you’re a cataract surgeon, offering refractive procedures like LASIK sounds like an excellent way to increase your patient base. But is it?
