Abstract Details


To assess the efficacy and safety of FLACS in hard (brown and black) cataracts


Centre for Sight, Hyderabad


Results of 36 cases of hard (brown and black) cataracts who underwent FLACS and compared with 52 cases of hard cataracts which underwent conventional phacoemulsification surgery.


In case of FLACS, the surgery could be successfully completed in all cases.The cornea was clear in 28 cases (77.7%) on first postop day and in all cases (100%) at 1 week. There was one case (2.8%) of capsulorrhexis extension and PC break. In case of conventional phaco, as high as 12 cases (25%) had to be converted to extracapsular cataract surgery midway during the surgery. Only 8 cases (16.7%) showed clear cornea on first postop day and 14 cases (29.1%) were showing some corneal edema at one week. 8 eyes (16.7%) had a PC break.


Femtosecond laser assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) is a very useful, effective and safe surgical procedure in cases of hard and very hard cataracts.
