AAO 2017
    Cataract/Anterior Segment, Enhancement, Femtosecond Laser Surgery, IOLs and Implantation

    In this interview from AAO 2017, Dr. Liliana Werner discusses her newly developed technique to alter the power of an existing IOL using a femtosecond laser. Her group’s investigations have demonstrated that targeted laser can create a refractive-index shaping lens within an existing IOL. A recent study in rabbits found that these adjustments may be safely and successfully performed in vivo on both hydrophilic and hydrophobic IOLs without affecting their optical quality.
