    Optical coherence tomography and 3-dimensional confocal structured imaging system–guided femtosecond laser capsulotomy versus manual continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis

    Purpose To compare the features of capsulotomy obtained during femtosecond laser–assisted cataract surgery with those of continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis (CCC) obtained using a standard manual technique. Setting Ophthalmology Clinic, Department of Medicine and Science of Ageing, University G. D'Annunzio Chieti-Pescara, Chieti, Italy. Design Prospective randomized clinical study. Methods Candidates for cataract extraction were randomized into 1 of 3 groups as follows: Lensx femtosecond laser–assisted cataract surgery capsulotomy (laser group 1), Lensar femtosecond laser–assisted cataract surgery capsulotomy (laser group 2), and manual CCC (manual group). Results Each group comprised 30 eyes (30 patients). The capsulotomies in laser ...
