Phacoemulsification is the most common ophthalmic surgery and it revolutionized cataract surgery. With the introduction of sutureless clear corneal incisions surgical time has been reduced, faster postoperative recovery enabled, and induced astigmatism lowered. Various premium intraocular lenses (IOLs) such as multifocal, accommodative and toric IOLs are designed to enable the best refractive outcomes. In order to further increase accuracy and precision femtosecond laser assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) has been introduced with ability to perform incisions, capsulorhexis and disassembly of the lens.
