Abstract

Introduction: Femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery improved the results of cataract surgeries. Aim: Outcome analysis of femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery using the novel 2.16 software and the SoftFit® Patient Interface. Method: The novel software and the newly developed Patient Interface were used in 100 eyes of 100 patients. Results: Length of femtosecond laser pretreatment decreased to 45-60 seconds. The smaller size of the new patient interface resulted in easier docking even on pediatric eyes. Suction force used for docking decreased from 40-50 mmHg to 16-20 mmHg. Incidence rate of subconjunctival suffusion decreased from 40% to 15-20% and its clinical severity was reduced, too. No corneal microfolds evolved, thus the incidence rate of the free-floating capsulotomies increased from 30% to 97%. The total energy of femtosecond laser pretreatment was decreased by almost 50%. Corneal wounds had the desired structure, and they were easy to open and closed precisely. Conclusions: The SoftFit® patient interface and the novel software widened the possible uses of the femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery, e.g. in pediatric ophthalmology. Innovations improved the safety and the predictability of the method.
