History of laser cataract surgery l.jpg
History of “Laser Cataract Surgery”

  • YAG laser lens softening

  • Dodick laser

  • Phoenix Laser

Femtosecond Laser in Ophthalmology

  • Corneal Surgery

    Lasik flaps

    Corneal transplants

    (Corneal relaxing incisions)

    (Cataract surgery incisions)

  • Companies doing corneal surgery with fs laser:

    AMO (Intralase)

    Technolas (FEMTEC Perfect Vision)

    Zeimer (LDV)

    Zeiss (Visumax)

Femtosecond Laser Photodisruption

  • Plasma expansion

  • Shock wave pressure

  • Cavitation bubble creation

  • Decreased pulse duration reduces photodisruption threshold and secondary effects allowing closer placement of pulses
