Abstract


Since its introduction in 2009 femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) has promised to revolutionise cataract surgery.

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.
