Abstract Details


To evaluate and compare mean phaco energy, mean phaco time and effective phaco time between FLACS and CPCS.


Dr.Solomatin Eye Center, Riga, Latvia


Patients diagnosed with cataract, were randomly divided into two groups, the group that underwent FLAC surgery using 'Victus' femtosecond laser from Valeant, Bausch & Lomb and group that underwent CPC surgery, using 'Infinity', Alcon phacoemulsification system.


40 patients were recruited for the study. The mean age in LACS patient group was 62.47+/- 6.3 (SD) from 39 to 87. The mean age in CPCS group was 68.33 +/- 8.2 from 58 to 95. In both groups the stage of cataract was graded with a help of Oculus Pentacam grading system PNS. The mean phaco energy was much higher in the CPCS group than in the FLACS group, the differences were statistically significant (mean difference =-5.88%, 95%, p <0.001). Nevertheless there were no statistically significant difference in mean phaco time between two groups (mean difference = -0,18s, 95%, p=0.35). There was statistically significant reduction in EPT FLACS group ( mean difference =1.16s, 95%, p=0.002).


This results indicate that the use of FSL in cataract surgery leads to a much lower EPT compared to the standard phaco.
