Abstract Details


To assess higher predictability of the customize cut precision and dimension with a smooth cut and higher impact of clinical outcome


Swiss Eye Research Foundation, Eye Clinic Orasis, Reinach AG, Switzerland


Performance of the FEMTO LDV Z6 PowerPlus is evaluated in vivo for cataract surgery. 24 eyes were analyzed following cataract surgery, in one eye a femto-phako approach were done and in the other the cataract surgery were performed conventional. Analysis was done using topography, wavefront measurement, corneal OCT, confocal corneal laser-scanning microscopy and clinical examinations.


Achieved very smooth cutting surface by application of small bubbles and high frequency. A perfect access was achieved of main, primary incision and paracentesis. The visual acuity increases significantly in both groups p<0.001. Between the means of the groups there is not significant difference p=0.47 but between the standard deviation at each time (p<0.01). There is not significant difference regarding HOA RMS in the LDV group (p=0.107) at any time but significant in the conventional phako group (p=0.014).


FEMTO LDV Z6 PowerPlus, which combines pulse energy in low nanojoule and frequency in megahertz range, results of a highly predictable quality resection for cataract surgery with a significant smaller range of visual acuity and significant smaller HOA RMS compare with conventional phako.
