The use of a femtosecond laser to alter the hydrophilicity of targeted areas allows building a refractive index shaping lens within an existing IOL. This video will focus on the chemical changes and the lens creation within the targeted area leading to IOL power change, as well as on the differences between the laser system used in this application versus systems used in cataract surgery.
