Why is a Patient Interface (PI) lens used?

The Patient Interface lens has two functions in the procedure. First, it allows the surgeon to stabilize the eye and center the capsulotomy on the visual axis. Second, it also defocusses the laser providing additional safety for the retina.

What temperature effects are there during a CAPSULaser procedure?

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 […]
