femto-assisted cataract surgery

Ashvin Agarwal, Soosan Jacob
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The purpose is to review the current and effective advantages of femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS). RECENT FINDINGS: FLACS has advantages over manual phacoemulsification in its precision, and predictability and may be especially advantageous in difficult situations such as shallow anterior chamber, subluxated cataracts, white cataracts, and so on. However, the femtosecond capsulorhexis may not be as strong as a manual rhexis...

PURPOSE: To evaluate clinical data and outcomes after femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery with the recently introduced low-energy Femto LDV Z8 laser during a 3-month follow-up. SETTING: Knappschaft Eye Clinic Sulzbach, Knappschaft Hospital Saar GmbH, Sulzbach, Germany. DESIGN: Consecutive case series. METHODS: Femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery was performed using the low-energy femtosecond laser. Clinical data including objective refraction, corrected distance visual acuity, central corneal thickness (CCT), endothelial cell count (ECC), and aqueous flare were evaluated 1 day, 1 week, 4 weeks, and 3 months postoperatively...

PURPOSE: To assess the alterations of the anterior chamber conditions including laser flare photometry after femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) compared to the manual phacoemulsification. METHODS: Data of n=70 FLACS (mean age 67.2 ± 8.9 years) and n=40 manual phacoemulsification (mean age 69.5 ± 9.6 years) were analyzed. The procedures were performed by LenSx Alcon, USA, and Alcon Infiniti Vision System, USA. The following parameters were recorded: laser flare photometry (Kowa FM 700, Japan), anterior chamber (AC) depth, AC volume, AC angle (Pentacam, Oculus Inc...

PURPOSE: To describe endokeratophakia in which a small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) lenticule from a myopic patient is implanted into a recipient eye through a small incision to correct hyperopia. METHODS: A 23-year-old aphakic woman presented following cataract surgery to remove a childhood congenital cataract with hyperopia of +12.00 -1.50 × 155, corrected distance visual acuity of counting fingers, and exotropia. A SMILE procedure using the VisuMax femto-second laser (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Jena, Germany) was performed on a donor patient with high myopia and the extracted lenticule was stored (power -10...

PURPOSE: To investigate the intraocular prostaglandin concentrations after femtosecond laser treatment and the potential relationship to miosis. METHODS: Aqueous humor was collected from patients after femtosecond laser pretreatment and at the beginning of routine cataract surgery. The total prostaglandin and the prostaglandin E2 concentrations were measured in two independent studies using an enzyme-linked immunoassay. RESULTS: A significantly higher level of prostaglandins was noted in the aqueous humor of patients immediately after femtosecond laser treatment...
