VIDEO: Surgeon presents intelligent, ultrafast femtosecond laser for cataract surgery

PARIS — Pavel Stodulka, MD, PhD, performed the first in-human surgery with a new femtosecond laser for cataract surgery manufactured by the French company Keranova. The laser, which raised great interest at the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons meeting, fragments the nucleus in 20,000 cubic fragments of 200 µm size in less than 20 seconds and through a sophisticated intelligent technology customizes laser power to the different parts of the lens.
