Abstract

We describe a case of modified femtosecond laser settings for cataract extraction in a patient with a posterior chamber phakic intraocular lens (PIOL), to avoid incomplete treatment patterns and treatment displacement. Modification of laser settings (increased depth for the capsulotomy, increased vertical spot spacing for the capsulotomy and increased anterior and posterior capsule safety margins for lens fragmentation) seems to make femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery feasible in patients with posterior chamber PIOLs, as complete treatment patterns are achieved.
