Abstract

We describe a technique for image-guided femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery in a case of Peters anomaly type 2. The femtosecond laser technology enabled reliable construction of a complete capsulotomy despite central corneal opacification and a tented anterior capsule. Use of an image-guided femtosecond laser for cataract extraction in Peters anomaly type 2 is a safe method for removing these complex cataracts while preserving capsular and corneal integrity.
