    Managing mature white cataracts

    Boston—The efficacy and safety of femtosecond laser for cataract surgery has been questioned—the presumption being that the technology will not be able to penetrate the opaque lens cataractous material, said Sudhank Bharti, MS.

    This femtosecond laser study indicated that the laser easily removed mature, white cataracts followed by IOL implantation. The laser performs three steps: capsulorhexis, nucleotomy, and creation of corneal ports.

    Bharti, from the Bharti Eye Foundation, New Delhi, India, reported using femtosecond laser technology in eight eyes with advanced cataracts for which he performed a normal routine cataract extraction procedure.
