Femtosecond Laser for Cataract Surgery

Femtosecond laser for cataract surgery

The role of femtosecond laser in cataract surgery is

  • The formation of a more accurate incision at the peripheral cornea
  • The creation of a round and centred opening of the anterior capsule of the lens
  • Assist in the breaking up of the cataract together with the ultrasonic technology. This would shorten the time spent removing the cataract which is less traumatic for the eye and having better visual outcomes.

Benefits of femtosecond laser for cataract surgery are to reduce intraoperative complications and to have more predictable visual outcomes after surgery.
