The purpose of the study is to compare femtosecond laser-assisted capsulotomy to manual capsulorhexis in patients with intumescent cataracts. An intumescent cataract is defined as a cataract with a pressurized capsular bag.


Inclusion Criteria: - Willing to undergo cataract surgery. - Able to lie flat in a supine position. - Able to understand and willing to sign the Informed Consent Form (ICF). - Presenting with intumescent white cataract, with a liquid pressurized bag and a milky, liquid cortex. - Other protocol-specified inclusion criteria may apply. Exclusion Criteria: - Pregnant or lactating mothers. - Corneal disease that precludes application of the cornea or transmission of laser light at 1030 nanometer (nm) wavelength. - Corneal opacity that would interfere with the laser beam. - Presence of blood or other material in the anterior chamber. - Hypotony or presence of corneal implant. - Poorly dilating pupils. - Condition which would cause inadequate clearance between the intended capsulotomy depth and the endothelium. - Residual, recurrent, active ocular or eye lid disease, including any corneal abnormality. - Any contraindication to cataract surgery. - Other protocol-specified exclusion criteria may apply.
