Abstract: Phacoemulsification is the main method for cataract surgery in the world. Femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery gives several surgical advantages over conventional phacoemulsification, including laser capsulotomy, lens fragmentation, clear cornea incisions and limbal relaxing incisions. The benefits such as reduced complication rates and improved postoperative refractive results are being investigated. In practical application, the surgical indication have to be detailed, and speeding up the progress of developing femtosecond laser combine phacomulsification system for cataract surgery is still important.
