In this video we can see how (FLACS) Femtosecond laser assisted cataract makes it easier by doing a complete circular capsulorehxsis and by cutting the nucleus with a sextan cuts into small triangles and also by softening the remaining nucleus into small cubes.

The role of femtosecond lasers in cataract surgery is to assist or replace several aspects of the manual cataract surgery. These include the creation of the initial surgical incisions in the cornea, the creation of the capsulotomy, and the initial fragmenting (breaking up) of the lens. The femtosecond laser may also produce incisions within the peripheral cornea to aid the correction of pre-existing astigmatism. The preliminary results are promising
