Laser Cataract Surgery

Traditional cataract surgery vs. femtolaser-assisted cataract surgery

laser cataract surgery

In traditional cataract surgery, cuts (incisions) into the cornea are carried out manually. The opening of the anterior capsule is also performed manually with a surgical instrument. The goal of these procedures is to make high-precision cornea incisions as circular as possible at the right place with the perfect size.

Using the CATALYS® System, the surgeon can perform cornea incisions to a high level of precision and accuracy.
The pinpointed femtosecond laser impulses help achieve the desired size, form and position even in case of a circular opening of the lens capsule.
