The CAPSULaser technique is a Selective Laser Capsulotomy approach that only causes a local thermal effect in the lens capsule. First and foremost, the laser energy is only absorbed by the CAPSULBlue. Second, the total energy entering the eye is substantially less than a femtosecond-laser procedure and there are no bubbles produced during the CAPSULaser […]

“We have tried to approach the capsulotomy from a different angle,” said Pavel Stodulka MD, PhD, of the Gemini Eye Clinics in the Czech Republic. He presented his experience with the CAPSULaser laser during an interactive free paper session on femto laser-assisted cataract surgery at the XXXIII Congress of the ESCRS in Barcelona, Spain, writes […]
Video Journal of Cataract & Refractive Surgery – Towards the Perfect Capsulotomy – The 2015 Binkhorst Lecture by By Richard Packard, MD, FRCS, FRCOphth Over the course of 265 years, the capsulotomy has evolved from a crude opening to give access to the nucleus for its removal to a continuous curvilinear capsulorrhexis for both anterior […]
Creation of consistently sized, centrally located, circular capsulotomies has long been the goal of the cataract surgeon, writes Richard Packard. To read full article on CRSTEurope click on link below: https://crstodayeurope.com/articles/2015-oct/a-new-approach-to-laser-capsulotomy/
