Low-energy femtosecond laser-assisted IOL fragmentation shows feasibility

BELGRADE, Serbia — Femtosecond laser-assisted IOL fragmentation using low energy parameters showed feasibility in a study presented at the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons winter meeting.
“There have been previous case reports, but the use of high energy and small spot produced excessive cavitation gas bubbles and production of toxic elements. Our purpose was to optimize energy parameters and verify the technique in the clinic,” Natalia Anisimova, MD, said.
