Abstract Details


Cataract surgery using Femto Laser technology is poised to be the next major innovation in ophthalmic surgical safety, predictability and efficacy. The LensAR Laser System™ integrates proprietary automated biometry, advanced ocular imaging and measurement technology, 3D-CSI™ (Confocal Structured Illumination) with an advanced ultra short pulse laser. This technique enables the system to perform corneal inzisions, limbal relaxing incisions, capsulorhexis and lens fragmentation. The authors report on the first European clinical results with the new LensAR Femto laser compared to standard cataract surgery with a 2.4mm clear cornea insizion and manuel capsulorhexis.


July 2012 Eye hospital Bellevue in Kiel/Germany


In a prospective clinical trial the results of the first patients treated with the LensAr in comparison to standard cataract surgery will be performed. Phacoemulsification will be performed in both groups using same phaco system (Örtli, Switzerland).


Results regarding operative precision (rhexis size, centration and symmetry and refractive predictability) and complications (capsular tears, vitreous loss, asymmetric fibrosis, etc). A special focus will be a comparison between the utrasonic cumulative dispersed energy (CDE) and endothelium cell loss.


The presentation will demonstrate the safety and efficacy of the new Femto Laser technique in the early learning curve using the LensAR Laser platform. FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE?: No
