Abstract

Purpose: To report the use of femtosecond laser cataract surgery in a traumatic case. Methods: A 38-year-old man had a penetrating eye injury while working with wire. The corneal laceration was sutured first. In the postoperative period, cortical cataract appeared in the crystalline lens; therefore, in the second session, cataract surgery was performed using a femtosecond laser system (Alcon-LenSx Lasers Inc.). Results: Corneal incisions, an intact 4.5 mm capsulorhexis, and nucleus liquefaction were performed with the femtosecond laser. Corrected distance visual acuity was 0.9 1 month after surgery. Conclusions: Femtosecond laser is an effective method in traumatic cataract cases after penetrating eye injury. Corneal incisions, capsulorhexis, and nucleus liquefaction can be performed precisely and safety.
