INTRODUCTION: Femtosecond laser is a revolutionary, innovative treatment method used in cataract surgery. AIM: To evaluate free radical quantity in the anterior chamber of the eye, during femtosecond laser assisted capsulotomy, in a porcine eye model. METHOD: Seventy fresh porcine eyes were collected within 2 hours post mortem, were transported at 4 ºC and treated within 7 hours. Thirty-five eyes were used as control and 35 as femtosecond laser assisted capsulotomy group...

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...

REVIEW
Timothy V Roberts, Michael Lawless, Gerard Sutton, Chris Hodge
The introduction of femtosecond lasers to cataract surgery has been the major disruptive technology introduced into ophthalmic surgery in the last decade. Femtosecond laser cataract surgery (FLACS) integrates high-resolution anterior segment imaging with a femtosecond laser allowing key steps of cataract surgery to be performed with computer-guided laser accuracy, precision, and reproducibility. Since the introduction of FLACS, there have been significant advances in laser software and hardware as well as surgeon experience, with over 250 articles published in the peer-reviewed literature...

Georg Gerten, Michael Schultz, Uwe Oberheide
: We describe a technique that uses a femtosecond laser (femtosecond laser pseudophakic capsulotomy) to treat capsule contraction syndrome (capsule phimosis) that may occur after cataract surgery and intraocular lens (IOL) implantation. Enlarging the capsulotomy with a femtosecond laser may offer advantages over the existing treatment methods, neodymium:YAG laser capsulotomy and manual extension of the capsulorhexis. FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE: None of the authors has a financial or proprietary interest in any material or method mentioned...

PURPOSE: To assess the role of femtosecond laser technology in the management of severely subluxated cataracts DESIGN: Retrospective, interventional case series METHODS: All eyes with subluxated cataract seen between July 2012 and June 2015 were assessed for suitability for femtosecond laser assisted cataract surgery, with the use of capsular tension devices. Participants with subluxated cataracts of at least 6 clock hours of zonular weakness were included in the study. Data collected included patient demographics, pre and post-operative best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), nuclear density, extent of zonular weakness, completeness of capsulotomy and complications...

UNLABELLED: We developed a surgical technique that combines use of an iris hook and a pupil expansion ring in femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery complicated by insufficient mydriasis and an ectopic pupil. With this technique, the surgery, including femtosecond laser assistance, phacoemulsification, and intraocular lens implantation, can be accomplished successfully prior to iris repair.

AIM: To define the financial and management conditions required to introduce a femtosecond laser system for cataract surgery in a clinic using a fuzzy logic approach. METHODS: In the simulation performed in the current study, the costs associated to the acquisition and use of a commercially available femtosecond laser platform for cataract surgery (VICTUS, TECHNOLAS Perfect Vision GmbH, Bausch & Lomb, Munich, Germany) during a period of 5y were considered. A sensitivity analysis was performed considering such costs and the countable amortization of the system during this 5y period...

BACKGROUND: Femtosecond-laser assisted clear cornea cataract surgery may hold promise in safer and more effective procedures. We decided to perform a comparative study to standard manual incision phacoemulsification surgery. METHODS: This is a single-center, single-intervention, and prospective comparative data evaluation of 133 consecutive cases subjected to cataract surgery. Group-A (Phaco), manual capsulorhexis & ultrasound phacoemulsification (n = 66); Group-B femtosecond-laser assisted capsulorhexis and lens fragmentation (n = 67), employing the LenSx laser (Alcon Surgical, Ft...
