Femto-LASIK in a nutshell:
- flap surgery
- use of 2 lasers
- very predictable results
- vision recovery after 24 hours
Technique with flap
LASIK or ‘laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis’ is a surgical treatment during which the surgeon creates a flap to reach the stroma. After the flap is lifted, the shape of the cornea is changed using an excimer laser. Before, the ophthalmologist used a microkeratome (a thin blade) to create the flap. Nowadays, a femtosecond laser is more common as it is more precise, thus safer.
At Medifocus, all LASIK laser eye surgeries are performed using a Zeiss VisuMax femtosecond laser, called femto-LASIK. We guarantee that we never use a microkeratome, but always 2 lasers positioned opposite each other. The femtosecond laser creates the flap, and the actual stromal correction is performed with an excimer laser.
LASIK: a summary
Lasik is a quick and painless treatment with very predictable results. During the treatment, we use 2 complementary lasers that are positioned opposite each other. Vision recovery occurs within 24 hours; complete stable refraction in 6 weeks.
