Evolving femtosecond laser technology leads to increasingly better outcomes

Ljubljana, SLOVENIA — Femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery with the Lensar laser system is a safe and fast procedure, and continuous evolution will lead to further improvement, according to one speaker. “When we started in 2012, we felt like entering a new galaxy, where we could aim at an extremely high level,” Detlef Holland, MD, said at the winter meeting of the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons. The new second-generation disposable patient interface device, which improves suction and centration shift, has made docking easy and eye fixation stable.
