Emerging Technology in Refractive Cataract Surgery.

Saraiva J, Neatrour K, Waring Iv GO - J Ophthalmol (2016)

Bottom Line: Technology in cataract surgery is constantly evolving to meet the goals of both surgeons and patients.Recent major advances in refractive cataract surgery include innovations in preoperative and intraoperative diagnostics, femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS), and a new generation of intraocular lenses (IOLs).This paper presents the latest technologies in each of these major categories and discusses how these contributions serve to improve cataract surgery outcomes in a safe, effective, and predictable manner.

ABSTRACT
Technology in cataract surgery is constantly evolving to meet the goals of both surgeons and patients. Recent major advances in refractive cataract surgery include innovations in preoperative and intraoperative diagnostics, femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS), and a new generation of intraocular lenses (IOLs). This paper presents the latest technologies in each of these major categories and discusses how these contributions serve to improve cataract surgery outcomes in a safe, effective, and predictable manner.

Mentions: Femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) has realized increasing popularity. Noninferiority has been established relative to manual cataract surgery, and some reports have suggested superiority relative to manual methods [24]. Potential advantages include customized corneal incisions and capsulotomy position, precision in shape and size of capsulotomy, custom lens fragmentation patterns, endothelial cell loss reduction, and better refractive stability and predictability [24]. After the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of laser-assisted capsulotomy and lens fragmentation in 2010, five platforms have been released: LenSx by Alcon (Fort Worth, TX); the LensAR by LensAR (Orlando, FL); the Catalys by Abbott/Optimedica (North Chicago, IL); the Victus by Bausch and Lomb (Rochester, NY); and the LDV Z8 by Ziemer (Port, Switzerland) (Figure 3) [25].
