Bladeless Cataract

Cataract surgery is the removal of the natural lens of the eye that is opacified, called a cataract, and then replacement with an intraocular lens that is an artificial lens implanted after cataract surgery. A cataract develops in the eye because of metabolic changes in the lens or due to trauma or it can be congenital.

Many surgical procedures are introduced, to remove cataracts, in the field of ophthalmology. Cataract surgery has evolved from intracapsular cataract extraction, extracapsular cataract extraction, Phacoemulsification and then with newest technology Bladeless Femtosecond Laser cataract surgery

Here we are going to talk about the Bladeless Femtosecond cataract surgery in which instead of blade or needle, a femtosecond laser technology is used to make the cut in the patient’s eye.A pulse in the laser is used for this method.Pulse that is used in this,is femtoseconds (10-15) of seconds,that’s why we call it,Femtosecond laser cataract surgery.

More-over laser incisions are computer-controlled so they are more accurate than the manual incision.Wound seals better patient becomes less prone to infections.

Procedural Difference

Femto is different from other procedures as:-

  • In Phacoemulsification, the eye’s internal lens is emulsified with an ultrasonic handpiece and aspirated from the eye.
  • In ECCA, a large incision is made in which lens is removed leaving the capsule behind
  • In ICCE, the opacified lens is removed completely with its capsule.
