TLDR
The article presented a combined 3D optical coherence tomography (OCT) system and femtosecond laser for cataract surgery and examined the capsulotomy edge strength in cadaveric porcine eyes.
Comparison of anterior capsulotomy techniques: continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis, femtosecond laser-assisted capsulotomy and selective laser capsulotomy
TLDR
Anterior capsulotomies behave as non-linear elastic (elastomeric) systems when exposed to an external load and both the capsulotomy edge for SLC and both were significantly stronger than FLACS.
Evaluation of femtosecond laser-assisted anterior capsulotomy in the presence of ophthalmic viscoelastic devices (OVDs)
TLDR
An OVD with a refractive index similar to aqueous humour and lower viscosity, such as Healon or Provisc, as well as a higher energy setting, are recommended, to enhance the efficacy of laser capsulotomy.
Femto-second laser (FSL) techniques and consistency in corneal surgery: experimental study.
[Femtolaser-assisted phacoemulsification of intumescent cataract].
TLDR
The optimized technique of femtolaser-assisted intumescent cataract phacoemulsification eliminates leakage of lens material into the anterior chamber and allows performing anterior capsulorhexis of given size and shape.

TLDR
In a small series of human clinical procedures, femtosecond laser capsulotomies and phacofragmentation demonstrated similarly high levels of accuracy and effectiveness, with no operative complications.

TLDR
Manual continuous curvilinear capsulorrhexis produced the most extensible porcine capsulotomy with the most regular edge and is preferred by surgeons for patients aged 2 years and older and is recommendable for children.
The relationship between capsulorhexis size and anterior chamber depth relation.
TLDR
A 4 mm capsulorhexis results in a longer postoperative ACD than does a 6 mm Capsulor hexis for the IOL type used in this study.
Femtosecond Laser–Assisted Cataract Surgery with Integrated Optical Coherence Tomography
TLDR
A more precise, reproducible and automated way to remove cataracts by combining the precise cuts of a laser with the imaging sophistication of optical coherence tomography, a method that uses interference of coherent light scattered by biological tissues to create three-dimensional images of their internal structure.
Pulsed electron avalanche knife: new technology for cataract surgery
TLDR
PEAK-fc is a very helpful cutting device for complicated cases of cataract surgery, especially for mature and congenital cataracts, traumatic zonulolysis or anterior segment complications after intraocular inflammation.
