Abstract Details


To clinically evaluate the advantages of light adustable lens (Calhoun Vision, Pasadena, California USA) implantation after using a femtosecond laser system (Catalys Precision Laser System, OptiMedica, California USA) to perform capsulotomy, lens fragmentation and cataract incisions in the treatment of patients with senile cataract.


Ruhr University Eye Clinic, Bochum, Germany


As part of an ongoing prospective study of femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery 12 eyes were already included. Clinical parameter like visual acuity, IOL centration and capsular shrinkage were evaluated postoperatively.


The Catalys improved the precision of sizing the capsulotomy compared with manual technique. The use of the laser also resulted in a considerable reduction of the postoperative stabilization time resulting in earlier adjustments and lock-in procedures.


The improvements in precision made possible by the Catalys system were truly remarkable and represent a significant advancement in the practice of modern cataract surgery. In combination with light adjustable lens implantation the adjustments and lock-in procedures could start earlier after cataract surgery. FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE?: No
