A new laser operates automatically Falls, which is the first step in this surgery since 1967
MADRID, January 20, 2012 (EUROPA PRESS) -
   The new femtosecond laser allows most of the steps of cataract surgery is performed automatically, and without relying on the expertise of the surgeon, according to recent results presented at the XLIV Congress of the Andalusian Society of Ophthalmology (SAO) held in Granada.
   This is the first step in cataract surgery since 1967, when he appeared ultrasonic phacoemulsification, and according to Dr. Laureano Alvarez-Rementería present at this congress and one of the first Spanish ophthalmologists to use it, "will end up replacing it", as it is "safer and effective."
   The ultrasound technique all the steps are manual: corneal incisions, circular incision of the capsule that surrounds the waterfall, fragmentation of the lens for removal and introduction of a lens, so that "results may vary," says this expert .
   However, this laser does not damage any adjacent cell, and that "much of the intervention is guided automatically and accurately by the computer in real time."
   What it does is scan the lens on the surface and inside, and through infrared waves, and in millionths of a second, creating an air bubble separating the molecules of the lens without cutting or burning any tissue.
   This reduces the possibility that the lens is not completely focused, "as occurs in many people implanted with the conventional technique, causing halos or spots in vision," he says.
   Several studies carried out at two and three years with this technique in the Semmelweis University of Budapest (Hungary) have shown that the lens is focused much more precise femtosecond laser and that "patients experience a marked improvement in visual acuity ".
   Another advantage of the new laser intervention, according to Dr. Alvarez-Rementería, is that it is painless, short duration (15-20 minutes) and recovery much faster than with the previous procedure. "The patient goes home watching blurry, but the visual recovery is not in days but in hours," he says.
