The investigational device is an approved femtosecond laser (FSL) device with an integrated imaging system to perform certain steps of the cataract procedure. The FSL will perform anterior capsulotomy and lens fragmentation in individuals suffering from age-related cataract with need of cataract surgery.
Cataract surgery will be performed in subjects who have signed an informed consent form. Macula thickness will be measured with Spectralis OCT on screening date.
Postoperative examinations will be implemented in accordance with the approved investigational plan on subjects and includes: visual acuity, slitlamp examination, retinal oct imaging and quantitative autofluorescence.

Patients with bilateral age related cataract will be included in the study. Manual cataract surgery (MCS) will be performed in one eye and laser cataract surgery (LCS) in the corresponding...
Since femtosecond laser was approved for cataract surgery by FDA in 2010, femtosecond laser assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) has demonstrated high precision of capsulotomy, reduced phacoe...
To compare the effects of femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) and conventional phacoemulsification surgery (CPS) on subfoveal choroidal thickness (SFCT) in age-related cata...
The aim of this study is to test the hypothesis, that in terms of Surgically Induced corneal Astigmatism (SIA), Higher-order Aberrations (HOA), and wound geometry the femtosecond clear cor...
This study is the long term analysis of two types of FSL 3-plane corneal wound profiles, namely CT1 and CT2 obtained after a FSL cataract surgery.
To report on outcomes of efficacy and safety in one of the largest series of eyes undergoing either conventional manual cataract surgery (MCS) or refractive femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery...
To evaluate the effect of preoperative intraocular pressure (IOP) and the vacuum level on IOP during femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery.
In 2019 the German Commission for the Prevention of Blindness (DKVB) held an eye camp in the Tanzanian town of Sumbawanga. For patients with mature cataracts and the ability to see light cateracts wer...
Atopic cataracts develop under the ages of 40 years, after which visual acuity rapidly declines. However, the mechanism underlying the development of atopic cataracts is not yet clear. We focused on ...
The introduction of the femtosecond (fs) laser has revolutionized ophthalmic surgery. With the worldwide application of fs-lasers, clinical outcomes and safety in corneal procedures have improved sign...
A technique utilizing a laser coupled to a catheter which is used in the dilatation of occluded blood vessels. This includes laser thermal angioplasty where the laser energy heats up a metal tip, and direct laser angioplasty where the laser energy directly ablates the occlusion. One form of the latter approach uses an EXCIMER LASER which creates microscopically precise cuts without thermal injury. When laser angioplasty is performed in combination with balloon angioplasty it is called laser-assisted balloon angioplasty (ANGIOPLASTY, BALLOON, LASER-ASSISTED).
Loss of CORNEAL ENDOTHELIUM usually following intraocular surgery (e.g., cataract surgery) or due to FUCHS' ENDOTHELIAL DYSTROPHY; ANGLE-CLOSURE GLAUCOMA; IRITIS; or aging.
The destruction of a calculus of the kidney, ureter, bladder, or gallbladder by physical forces, including crushing with a lithotriptor through a catheter. Focused percutaneous ultrasound and focused hydraulic shock waves may be used without surgery. Lithotripsy does not include the dissolving of stones by acids or litholysis. Lithotripsy by laser is LITHOTRIPSY, LASER.
Techniques using laser energy in combination with a balloon catheter to perform angioplasty. These procedures can take several forms including: 1, laser fiber delivering the energy while the inflated balloon centers the fiber and occludes the blood flow; 2, balloon angioplasty immediately following laser angioplasty; or 3, laser energy transmitted through angioplasty balloons that contain an internal fiber.
The making of a continuous circular tear in the anterior capsule during cataract surgery in order to allow expression or phacoemulsification of the nucleus of the lens. (Dorland, 28th ed)
Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine that is devoted to the study and treatment of eye diseases. As well as mild visual defects correctable by lenses, ophthalmology is concerned with glaucoma, uveitis and other serious conditions affecting the eye, ...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
