1. A laser surgical system for making incisions in ocular tissues during a cataract surgical procedure, the system comprising:

  • a laser system comprising a scanning assembly;

    a laser operable to generate a laser beam configured to incise ocular tissue;

    an imaging device configured to acquire image data of at least a portion of the lens; and

    a control system operably coupled to the laser system and configured to;

    operate the imaging device to generate image data for the patient'"'"'s crystalline lens;

    process the image data to determine an anterior capsule incision scanning pattern for scanning a focal zone of the laser beam for performing an anterior capsule incision; and

    operate the laser and the scanning assembly to scan the focal zone of the laser beam in the anterior capsule incision scanning pattern to perform the anterior capsule incision, wherein positioning of the focal zone is determined in part by the control system based on the image data.
