    Cataract/Anterior Segment

    This video describes a novel technique for posterior polar cataract emulsification. It highlights the use of femtosecond laser–assisted nuclear delineation, which eliminates the need to perform any hydroprocedures. This allows creation of multiple customized, concentric layers of nuclear cushioning that protect the posterior capsule until the final stages of surgery, thus enhancing safety.
