Dr. Jacobson is one of the first eye surgeons in Santa Barbara to offer the femtosecond laser for cataract surgery to patients in our community.
Standard cataract procedures and custom cataract surgeries are typically performed manually using a surgical blade for all incisions, allowing for a margin of error that can affect outcomes. Now, with the introduction of the first FDA-approved custom cataract femtosecond laser surgery, Dr. Jacobson offers bladeless cataract surgery to the Santa Barbara community.
Results show that the custom cataract femtosecond laser is up to 10 times more precise than manual techniques. This advancement has revolutionized cataract surgery, even in the hands of experience surgeons such as Dr. Jacobson MD. For more information, you can visit our cataract services page.
