Image Plus Laser Eye Centre is proud and excited to announce the official opening of Winnipeg Laser Cataract Surgery with Dr. James Wiens. As the first Ophthalmologist in Winnipeg to offer Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery, Dr. Wiens is eager to provide his patients with one of the most advanced technologies to remove their Cataracts.

Cataracts are the gradual hazing of the natural crystalline lens in your eye and cause your quality of vision to progressively decrease. Dr. Wiens has performed thousands of successful traditional cataract surgeries. However, Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery, performed with the CATALYS™ Precision Laser System provides a level of accuracy that simplifies an already extremely successful and safe surgery. The CATALYS™ systems allows Dr. Wiens to create a detailed 3D image of your eye, which helps individualize a treatment plan based on your specific needs.

While traditional cataract surgery is just as effective and successful, there are plenty of key advantages and benefits to choosing Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery. Here’s a few reasons why people are choosing laser over traditional:

Great Precision

The laser provides great precision and enables Dr. Wiens to make exact incisions to one tenth of a micrometer.

Individual Customization

The CATALYS™ System creates a detailed 3D image of your eye, allowing Dr. Wiens to create an individualized treatment plan based on your specific needs.

Tissue Preservation

The advanced 3D imaging and highly developed software of the CATALYS™ System ensures that the laser impulses be delivered to only the designated treatment area, protecting the surrounding tissue.

Astigmatism Correction

Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery allows our team to treat your astigmatism by reshaping a mild oval cornea into a rounder shape. This may reduce your need for glasses after surgery.

Speed and Comfort

Each treatment is completely customized to your eye, increasing precision while reducing time required resulting in the laser treatment taking typically about 30 to 45 seconds. The total laser procedure is finished in less than 5 minutes.



The Image Plus team is also excited to announce that we will be attending the Spring 2017 Manitoba Association of Optometrists Convention. This event is a great opportunity for us to learn more about our industry and engage in conversations about the latest technology uses.

We are also eager to attend a discussion about Femtosecond Cataract Surgery with Dr. Sondra Black, the Director of Clinical Operations for Crystal Clear Vision Canada. To find out more information regarding the procedure and costs involved, visit!
