With bladeless femtosecond laser cataract surgery, the entire laser process is carried out under computer-guided imaging. This means there is greater control and reliability of the incision, which allows a perfectly shaped, perfectly sized and precisely centered capsule opening to be made into the cataract lens. This allows a more accurate positioning and insertion of the artificial lens implant, which optimises the visual outcome. The femtosecond laser is also used to cut the cataract into 4-6 pieces, and this reduces the amount of ultrasound energy needed to remove the cataract.
