Abstract

With the increase of aging population, the rising demand for cataract surgery, along with the growing demand for post-operative visual quality, the concept of refractive cataract surgery has been put forward, which places more emphasis on the cataract surgical precision.In order to improve the spectacle independence rate, optimize the surgical experience, and obtain the best visual quality, new technologies involving all aspects of cataract surgery are emerging.Ophthalmologists should pay close attention to the updates of biometry measurement, types and design principles of intraocular lens, application of femtosecond technology, surgical assistant system and perioperative management concept, so as to improve the precision and accuracy of cataract surgery.

Key words:
