Femtosecond laser safely, successfully creates free-floating capsulotomies

Ralph Chu, MD, elucidated results obtained with the Victus femtosecond laser (Bausch + Lomb) at the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery annual meeting. “We can successfully create free-floating capsulotomies with the Victus platform,” Chu said. “It did not seem to be associated with increased suction loss or difficulty docking.
