In bladeless cataract surgery, the Femtosecond laser is used for these three critical steps of cataract surgery, i.e. to make the incisions- the cut on the cornea, the opening in the lens capsule, and to divide the lens into fragments. Thereafter, the lens fragments are removed by .

Intraocular lens (IOL) dislocation is a very rare condition that affects patients who have undergone cataract surgery and consists of the displacement of the implanted lens towards the vitreous cavity of the eye.
On other occasions, the lens becomes decentred from the visual axis but does not fall into the vitreous cavity (subluxation). Intraocular lens (IOL) implants are artificial lenses that help clear up your vision after cataract surgery. Learn about the procedure, its risks, and recovery time.
