Laser Cataract Surgery Approval

Laser Cataract Surgery offers the promise of assisting Cataract Surgeons in providing even greater safety, effectiveness and reproducibility with Cataract operations and Lens Implants (IOL). The LensAR™ Laser System has now received FDA Clearance for Lens Fragmentation and Anterior Capsulotomy in Cataract Surgery which are two of the technically difficult steps in Cataract removal that are now performed manually. By using a Cataract Surgeon directed and controlled femtosecond laser to perform the challenging manual steps of Cataract Surgery and Lens Implantation it is hoped that this common eye surgery will provide further improvements in outcomes beyond their current excellent levels.
