The LenSx 550 laser system is a femtosecond laser intended for use in performing anterior capsulotomy during cataract surgery. The anterior capsulotomy creates a circular opening in the anterior surface of the capsular bag that contains the cataractous crystalline lens. The objective of this study is to evaluate the ability of the LenSx 550 laser to successfully perform anterior capsulotomy during cataract surgery.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the thickness accuracy of Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) flaps created with the LenSx® Laser.
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...
This study aims to examine the health economic impact of adopting femtosecond laser technology to assist high volume cataract surgery (FLACS) within a state-funded healthcare system, the N...
Femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) is an increasingly common procedure. Most laser systems require corneal applanation and thereby increase intraocular pressure (IOP). The purpose of ...

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).
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.
Somatosensory evoked potentials generated through the application of HEAT to the SKIN with a LASER. They are often used clinically to assess the function of the central nociceptive system and in diagnosing NOCICEPTIVE PAIN.
Treatment using irradiation with LASER light of low power intensity so that the effects are not due to heat, as in LASER THERAPY. These non-thermal effects are thought to be mediated by a photochemical reaction that alters CELL MEMBRANE PERMEABILITY, leading to increased mRNA synthesis and CELL PROLIFERATION. Low-level laser therapy has been used for a wide variety of conditions, but most frequently for wound healing and pain control.
Fragmentation of CALCULI, notably urinary or biliary, by LASER.
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, ...
