Methods of laser vision correction
FEMTOSECOND LASER VISION CORRECTION (FEMTO LASIK)
Top benefits of Femto Lasik
Femto Lasik (aka Bladeless Lasik) is the most advanced and safe method for laser vision correction. This new technology has opened a new horizon in many areas of medicine. “Femto” means billions of times per second. Femto Lasik uses optical pulses that are faster than the human eye can detect, and stops the eye’s natural ability to move, or wiggle. During this bladeless procedure, your surgeon uses the femtosecond laser to create a flap in your cornea before altering the shape of the underlying tissue to correct your vision. Since Femto Lasik uses no physical instruments and is completely guided by computer, this means a much lower risk of infection during the surgery.
For the majority of patients, both methods of flap creation can be considered as “safe”, and therefore surgeon and patient preference will be important factors in deciding the Lasik flap creation technique.
Our clinics use the latest femtosecond technology from the world leaders in laser vision correction, including Ziemer Femto LDV (Switzerland) and VICTUS Femtosecond Laser Platform (Germany).
Ziemer Femto LDV (Switzerland)
It achieves great results using the lowest energy, very short pulses of high frequency, without damaging the surrounding tissue and causing mechanical stress. It is a guarantee of safety and precision. Other advantages of Femto LDV Z8 include an integrated imaging system and a TopView camera providing a visual check during the entire surgery.
VICTUS Femtosecond Laser Platform (Germany)
Victus Femtosecond Laser Platform features multi-mode versatility optimized for a broad range of laser cataract and corneal procedures on a single platform.
