Femtosecond laser technology synergistic with new IOLs

September 5, 2015

BARCELONA — Femtosecond laser technology will lend itself to IOL technology and drive innovation in IOL technology in a virtual cycle, according to Boris Malyugin, MD, PhD, who chaired a panel symposium on the topic at the Ophthalmology Futures European Forum.

“The panel agreed that femtosecond technology has the potential to stimulate the development of new IOLs as it adds optical and biomechanical benefits to the cataract procedure. We can potentially achieve a better centration of the lens, and therefore a better refractive stability, as well as prevent rotation, which is crucial for toric IOLs. The increased biomechanical stability is also linked to refractive results because a more stable lens leads to better refractive outcomes,” Malyugin said.
