Cataract surgery: When is the laser method a good idea?
Answer From Amir R. Khan, M.D.
Your doctor may suggest removing your cataract using a laser-assisted approach in certain situations. The laser may be useful when correcting for astigmatism, aligning an astigmatism-correcting intraocular lens, or softening a dense cataract.

During laser-assisted cataract surgery, your doctor typically uses the laser to make all incisions and to soften the cataract for removal by ultrasound (phacoemulsification).
