Read the Perspective from Steven B. Siepser, MD, FACS

Femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery with IOL implantation may induce a lower variability of anterior chamber depth over time with more stable postoperative refraction compared with conventional cataract surgery, according to a study.

The prospective study evaluated 40 eyes that underwent femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery and 40 eyes that underwent manual cataract surgery to compare IOL axial movements over a 6-month follow-up.
