    20 days ago - By Healio

    Compared to manual limbal relaxing incisions performed in conventional phacoemulsification cataract surgery, nonpenetrating femtosecond laser arcuate keratotomy performed during femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery can achieve an astigmatic correction of greater magnitude, according to a study.
    The randomized controlled trial compared the results of 400 patients who underwent cataract surgery, of which 200 were operated with conventional phacoemulsification and 200 with femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery. Fifty-one eyes of 51 patients in the phacoemulsification group underwent
