Abstract Details


To evaluate the edges and geometrical parameters of the anterior capsule comparied to capsulorhexis performed with a femtosecond laser and traditional manual technique.


Eye Center “East Sight Recover“, Institute of postgraduate education FMBA of Russia, Moscow, Russia


This study includes the results of 82 cataract surgeries. 45 was done with VICTUS femtosecond laser. Capsulorhexis was evaluated by the following criteria: 1) the circular (the deviation from a perfect circle), 2) continuity, 3) the deviation from the intended diameter.


Capsulotomy performed with a femtosecond laser was more precise in size and shape than manually created capsulorhexes. In all cases it was possible to create a circular continuous capsulorhexis. Circularity in the femtosecond group was 0.98 ±0.01. Manual capsulotomy - 0.94 ±0.01. The deviation from the intended diameter (5.5 mm) in the femtolaser group was ±0.08 mm., in the manual technique - ±0.44 mm.


Capsulotomy, produced with femtosecond laser was more reproducible, accurate and better centered.
