Lasers are being introduced into cataract surgery.  However, the Laser does not remove the cataract.  The Laser is used to make the incisions in the eye and the lens, and to soften the lens prior to removal from the eye.  This offers some precision to the cataract procedure, but it has not been shown to improve the outcome or safety of cataract surgery.  And it comes at an additional cost of $1000-$1500 per eye.  This cost is an out-of-pocket expense to the patient, not covered by any health insurance plans.  For more information visit common cataract questions.
