Using lasers in cataract surgery….the femtosecond laser

Mark was invited to present at a conference at Moorfields Eye Hospital a couple of weeks ago, devoted to the use of femtosecond laser in cataract surgery. This allowed those initial surgeons who’ve spearheaded the use of femtosecond laser in cataract surgery in the UK to share their experiences. The audience were primarily surgeons interested in taking up the technique in the future (this surgery is well established but few surgeons have taken it up in the UK, in part due to lack of availability and high cost of the equipment). There’s a huge amount of interest in the surgical community in this technique – it’s the first major technological advance in cataract surgery for over 2 decades! Mark and his colleagues discussed future improvements in design with his colleagues and the manufacturers, most of whom were present and following the proceedings with great interest.
