A brief note on Femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery

Femtosecond Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery (FLACS) is an advanced modality for cataract surgery. Its advantage in cataract surgery in terms of reduction of ultrasound power is controversial. We believe this controversy is due to different techniques and different nuclear densities included in the studies. Our study evaluated the Effective Phacoemulsification Time (EPT) during phacoemulsification with or without Femtosecond laser technology in different nuclear densities. The study comprised two main groups: Conventional phacoemulsification and FLACS groups. We stratified all eyes included in the study into soft and hard cataracts, and we employed the vertical quick chop technique for nucleus disassembly in all cases. In the FLACS group, we used sextans in addition to 350 microns grid softening
