Cataract surgery is one of the most commonly performed procedures worldwide. In traditional cataract surgery, the surgeon uses handheld instruments and a scalpel blade. This manual approach limits predictability and precision, potentially affecting visual outcomes and complication rates. Femtolaser surgery allows surgeons to access and remove a cataract with far greater accuracy, much faster and causing little or no discomfort to the patient (Omni Eye Services).
This book is a comprehensive guide to femtolaser cataract surgery. Beginning with an introduction to the procedure, the following chapters examine various laser systems currently used in practice, comparing their technologies, techniques, benefits and potential complications.
Written by an internationally recognised author and editor team, this invaluable manual includes more than 400 clinical photographs, illustrations and tables.
