Abstract

Since its introduction in 2009, femtosecond laser. assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) has promised to revolutionize cataract surgery. Despite its promise, the assessment of FLACS's perceived benefits has proven to be far more complicated than initially might have been thought. Most studies to date have not provided validation of FLACS technology as a clinically significant advancement on our current techniques. We review FLACS technology and outcomes, including detailed analysis of safety, efficacy, cost-effectiveness, and future prospects using data from the literature and our own published clinical experience.
