by Ashok Garg, Jorge L Alio, Eric D Donnenfeld

The book Femtosecond Laser: Techniques and Technology provides complete insight of Femtosecond Laser technology in various ocular indications. Refractive Surgery technology has undergone rapid advancements and innovations in last two decades. Femtosecond Laser offers new possibilities in the field of minimally invasive corneal surgery. It employs near infrared pulses to cut tissue with minimal collateral tissue damage. The highly localized tissue effect of low energy Femtosecond Laser shall expand the capabilities and precision of this technology in near future and may be used to create three-dimensional intrastromal resection with micron precision. Femtosecond laser is a simple, rapid reliable and efficient method in ophthalmology with satisfactory results for effective lens position and refractive outcome. Femtosecond laser is enjoying rapid growth in the area of cataract surgery. The Femtosecond Laser has proved its versatility in Lamellar keratoplasty, customized trephination in penetrating keratoplasty, tunnel creation for intracorneal ring segments, astigmatic keratotomy for keratoprostheses, non-invasive trans-scleral glaucoma surgery, retinal imaging presbyopic surgery and cataract surgery. Advances in ultrafast laser technology continued to improve the surgical safety, efficiency, speed and versatility of Femtosecond Lasers in Ophthalmology. Femtosecond Laser finds application in anterior and posterior segment indications of ophthalmology.
