The article reports on a new femtosecond laser platform which proved to be safe and effective for cataract surgery, according to Doctor Richard L. Lindstrom. Lindstrom's claims on the platform were based on a review of early results of a study by Hungarian surgeon Zoltan Nagy on the use of LenSx femtosecond laser for cataract surgery. Information is also presented on lens fragmentation techniques.
