FEMTO LASER-Assisted Cataract Surgery (FLACS)

Laser cataract surgery, using the precision of the femtosecond laser, uses state-of-the-art technology to improve the safety and visual outcomes of cataract surgery.

Femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) is an advanced surgical technique used to perform cataract removal.


Femtosecond lasers allow for highly precise incisions in the cornea and lens capsule, which can improve overall surgical accuracy. The precise incisions and automated capsulotomy reduce the risk of complications such as tear or rupture of the lens capsule, which can happen during manual cataract surgery. 


Since the femtosecond laser softens the cataract, it makes it easier to remove with phacoemulsification, reducing the time needed for this step.  FLACS can also be used to correct small amounts of astigmatism, which can improve vision quality post-surgery without the need for additional procedures.


FLACS can be customized to the patient’s unique eye anatomy, allowing for personalized treatment plans.  


The decision to opt for FLACS should be made on a case-by-case basis, considering the patient’s specific needs.   It’s important for patients to discuss the pros and cons with their eye care provider  to make an informed decision about the best approach to cataract surgery for their individual situation.
