Experimental: FS Laser Surgery
For femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FS Laser Surgery), subjects will receive capsulotomy, lens segmentation and, at investigator discretion, lens softening using the OptiMedica Catalys™ Precision Laser System (Catalys System)
Procedure: FS Laser Surgery
The Catalys System is an ophthalmic surgical laser system intended for use in cataract surgery. The intervention consists of the both surgery and the use of the device.Device: FS Laser System

- Capsulotomy Size [ Time Frame: Day of Surgery ]Capsulotomy size will be measured during surgery.
- Cumulated Dissipated Energy (CDE) [ Time Frame: Day of surgery ]CDE (the amount of ultrasound energy delivered during phacoemulsification of the crystalline lens) used will be measured during surgery.
