Femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) was introduced in 2009 and has increasingly been incorporated into surgical practice. The automation of three key aspects of cataract surgery was expected to deliver a significant improvement in both refractive and safety outcomes. The published literature has not yet shown consistent refractive improvement above conventional techniques. The purpose of this paper is to review current FLACS refractive outcomes and explore factors that may have contributed to the current findings and whether future improvements are possible.
