Laser Cataract Surgery
Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery or Laser Cataract Surgery involves using a femtosecond laser to assist the surgeon for certain portions of the cataract operation. The 3 main steps include the incision, capsulotomy and lens fragmentation. Utilization of the laser allows for a more accurate, exact and reproducible outcome of these sections. This could potentially lead to more improved vision and less complications. At this time however, parts of the procedure must still be performed manually and even the most precise laser is still no replacement for a experienced skilled surgeon.
