Abstract Details



Purpose:

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

Setting:

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

Methods:

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.

Results:

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.

Conclusions:

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