1. A method of fragmenting lens tissue of an eye with a laser surgical system, the method comprising:

  • generating a pulsed laser beam with a pulsed laser;

    directing the laser beam with an optics module towards a target region in the lens tissue; and

    controlling the optics module by a system control module to form a regular array of cells in the target region by creating layers of photodisrupted bubbles to generate cell boundaries, whereinthe layers are created by scanning the pulsed laser with the optics module according to a curvature of the focal plane of the optics module to track the natural curvature of the lens.
