The laser cataract surgery market has another player, now that the FDA's cleared its laser surgery device for another type of incision used during cataract surgery procedures.

LensAR said it won 510(k) clearance from the FDA for its laser cataract surgery device for arcuate incisions to the edge of the cornea.

The Orlando, Fla.-based medical device company said the regulatory watchdog's nod means the LensAR laser system is cleared in the U.S. for both corneal and arcuate incisions during cataract surgery and for anterior capsulotomy – an incision to open the capsule surrounding the eye's lens.
