During laser treatment for cataracts, a femtosecond laser is used to create incisions in the eye that are much more precise than those created through traditional surgical methods. The laser also helps to break up the cataract into smaller pieces, which are then removed from the eye.
One of the biggest benefits of laser treatment for cataracts is that it’s a bladeless procedure. Traditional cataract surgery involves using a scalpel to make incisions in the eye, which can increase the risk of infection and other complications. Laser treatment eliminates this risk by using a laser to create the incisions.
