Sheraz M. Daya MD wins Best Paper of Session (BPOS) Award at the ASCRS in San Diego

In his comparison of anterior capsulotomy techniques: continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis (CCC), femtosecond laser-assisted capsulotomy (FLACS) and Selective Laser Capsulotomy (SLC) , Mr Daya presented on the comparison of elasticity and fracture strength of all 3 techniques. The presentation derived from a study recently published in the British Journal of Ophthalmology and concludes: SLC is significantly […]
