Submitted by admin on Mon, 08/07/2017 - 10:20

The film shows femtosecond laser–assisted cataract surgery in a patient with a copolymer pIOL in both eyes. Air bubbles from the laser-created CCC accumulated under the pIOL and blocked the laser fragmentation in the first eye. The same procedure was performed in 2 stages in the second eye by separating the CCC stage from the others. After the CCC, the patient was moved upright. The surgeon waited for the bubbles to disappear before completing successful laser fragmentation.
