Is laser involved in cataract treatment?


Femtolaser is recently used in cataract surgery to facilitate the removal of the eye lens.

Also, YAG lasers are used in a later procedure to create a clear opening in the lens-containing membrane, if the membrane becomes cloudy in the months following the original cataract removal. Also, at Magrabi we use laser to break up the cloudy lens before removing it. This helps to make the incision wound very small (2 mm).
