    Evolutions in laser technologies making cataract surgery safer

    Superior outcomes can be achieved precisely, consistently, predictably

    Take-home message: Laser techniques have fundamentally changed the cataract surgery landscape. New, versatile platforms have made surgery safer and provided superior clinical outcomes precisely, consistently and predictably.

     

     

    Although femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery is now commonplace, using laser to assist with the steps of cataract surgery is still a relatively new concept. The first platforms reached the commercial market only about 5 or 6 years ago. Since then, however, they have undergone remarkable innovations that have served to refine their functionality and performance. 

    The incorporation of laser cataract surgery (LCS) into regular practice has fundamentally changed how the surgery is done, while also introducing the possibility of performing new techniques. These new techniques have, in turn, made the platforms more versatile and the surgery safer, while also making cataract surgery accessible to populations who may have been previously disqualified.

    As important as LCS has been for the cataract surgery field, there are important differences in the platforms available on the market. The individual features of a platform affect how it functions in the operating room: the features interact and complement each other to add to the platform’s overall capabilities.
