Laser-aided cataract surgery may cause anterior capsule tear
Femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) may cause postage-stamp perforations and additional aberrant pulses, leading to an increased rate of anterior capsule tears, according to a prospective, multicenter, comparative cohort case series published online Sept. 30 in Ophthalmology. "Capsular complications after [FLACS] were increased in an early study, which is thought to be the result of the initial learning curve," write Robin G. Abell, MBBS.
