PURPOSE To compare the effect of femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery on effective phacoemulsification time (EPT) with standard cataract surgery. METHODS This prospective clinical trial evaluated the feasibility of using a femtosecond laser system (Catalys Precision Laser System, OptiMedica) to perform capsulotomy and lens fragmentation in the treatment of patients with senile cataract. Patients were evaluated preoperatively with the Lens Opacities Classification System III (LOCS III… CONTINUE READING
