Breakthrough femtosecond technology moves cataract surgery toward ‘photoemulsification’

A new ultrafast femtosecond laser with a robotic arm and a novel disruptive technology for nucleus fragmentation is moving cataract surgery to the stage of all-laser “photoemulsification” surgery.
“Femtosecond lasers have been around for several years and have penetrated into the daily practice of eye surgeons. However, the majority of cataract surgeries are still not femto, and the proportion of FLACS is not increasing,” Pavel Stodulka, MD, PhD, said in an interview with Ocular Surgery News.
The femtolaser, he said, is still too complex and expensive, and it slows down
