A great article showing that femtosecond laser assisted cataract surgery seems to be improving outcomes and ease of cataract surgery
Cataract surgery technology has reached a high level of precision with superior levels of vision postoperatively. A decided surgeon learning curve, however, is attached to achieving these great outcomes, said Mark Packer, MD, FACS, CPI.
Patients presenting for cataract surgery—especially those in the baby boomer generation—are generally considered better educated and more demanding than their predecessors.
They want surgeons to provide them with postoperative vision that is as good at all distances as they had when they were in their youth. Technologies behind state-of-the-art femtosecond laser cataract surgeries are striving to meet those demands, and surgeons have to step up to the plate to optimize the patient experience.
