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 stronger than both CCC and FLACS
  • CCC significantly stronger than FLACS (data that had not previously been evaluated in human eyes)
  • SLC strength may be accounted for by SEM findings
