Purpose: 

To describe the intraoperative selections and complications with femtosecond laser cataract surgery.

Methods: 

The initial 100 eyes undergoing cataract surgery by 2 surgeons were included in the study. The cases underwent anterior capsulotomy, lens fragmentation, posterior capsule rupture, and corneal incisions with the femtosecond laser.
The procedure was completed by phacoemulsification and insertion of an intraocular lens.

Results: 

Of the 100 eyes, 95% underwent a complete procedure of laser capsulotomy, lens fragmentation, and corneal incisions. 
The complications was small pupil, small eyes, such imcomplete capsulotomie, posterior rupture wil be discussed.

Conclusion: 

There was a clear learning curve associated with the use of femtosecond lasers for cataract surgery. Adjustment to surgical technique and prior experience with a femtosecond laser seemed to flatten the learning curve.
