Femtosecond (Fs) lasers have ultra short laser pulses. Because of these short pulses the pulse energy is decreased and there is a reduction in the amount of thermal and mechanical damage to the surrounding tissues. Once designed to replace microkeratome in laser in-situ ker-atomileusis (LASIK), the Fs laser is being used and seems to be going to be used in many new areas. These areas are cutting flaps for LASIK, lenticule extraction for myopic correction, cuts for intrastromal ring segments, astigmatic keratotomy, lamellar keratoplasty, presbyopic correction, many steps in cataract surgery. In this review we will discuss recent advances about femtosecond laser.
