Abstract

This study showed that the amount of free radicals in the aqueous humor increased depending on the amount of laser irradiation energy in porcine lens in femtosecond laser assisted cataract surgery (FLACS). Even in clinical FLACS, during laser lens irradiation in the anterior chamber where no scavenger is present may cause corneal endothelial damage depending on the amount of free radicals generated. Therefore, it is necessary to pay attention to the laser irradiation setting.
