In femtosecond laser cataract surgery, the lens is prefragmented by the laser, which often allows the surgeon to proceed directly to quadrant removal. Although the peristaltic pump can be utilized, the tiny segments may occlude the tip and slow down the procedure. The venturi pump is preferable as its fluidics are better suited to draw in the small precut cubes without tip occlusion. Laser lens fragmentation allows for less ultrasound utilization with fluidics being the primary modality for lens removal.
