An Introduction to Cataract Surgery
Cataract surgery is one of the most common surgical procedures globally, and the numerous advances over recent years have helped to improve patient outcomes. Femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) introduced surgeons to a new non-invasive technique with high reproducibility compared with conventional procedures. Innovations in IOL technology, including most recently the introduction of extended depth of focus lenses and accommodating IOLs, offer more options for patients and better refractive outcomes along with shorter recovery times.
