lens fragmentation

Lens fragmentation device is in the loopA micro-interventional device that uses a nitinol filament can dissect any grade cataract without causing capsular stress.
Assessing the impact of FLACS on surgical outcomesFLACS is related to an increase of anterior chamber prostaglandin and cytokines, resulting in intra-operative miosis. This can be prevented by pre-operative non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug application. As a result of methodological problems, several studies on the association between femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery and cystoid macular oedema are inconclusive.
Advances in femto provide better results, fewer complicationsAdvances in femtosecond laser assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) providing better results, fewer complications, and higher rates of patient satisfaction.
Modifications bring enhanced performance for femtosecond laserA femtosecond laser platform (Victus, Bausch + Lomb) features an enhanced patient interface kit with a smaller outer diameter and other modifications that bring easier handling and centration along with greater stability.
Confronting rock-hard cataract: Femtosecond laser brings benefit for surgeons, patientsUse of a femtosecond laser for capsulotomy and lens fragmentation can facilitate cataract surgery in eyes with a rock-hard cataract.
