    WASHINGTON - Femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery provides more accurate refractive outcomes than manual surgery, according to a study presented at the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery meeting here.
    A retrospective review of more than 2,000 charts compared the refractive outcomes of 225 eyes that underwent cataract surgery with the LenSx femtosecond laser system and 231 eyes that underwent manual cataract surgery.
    “The proportion of eyes within 0.5 D of target refraction demonstrates there is a statistically significant difference
