The Femto-LASIK procedure

The Femto-LASIK procedure

Since 2014, the newest FemtoLasik technique is performed in our Center with the newest WaveLight FS200 Alcon FemtoLaser. The procedure is performed by the Head of Modern diagnostic and laser treatment department, Yelena A. Malayan.

Femto-LASIK is the development of the classic LASIK, and is the safest and most accurate method for correcting refractive errors. The Femto-LASIK procedure is identical to that of classic LASIK. The difference is in the preparation of the corneal flap. In classic LASIK, this is cut with the microkeratome (small cutting blade), while in Femto-LASIK, it is cut with the femtosecond laser.

The precision of the laser allows a very precise creation of a corneal flap, independent from the shape and the nature of the respective eye. Using this laser system it is possible to achieve more precise sight correction while being less invasive to the tissue; this new procedure also provides for a further reduction of risks related to the cut. The Femto LASIK surgery doesn’t require hospitalizationBoth the femtosecond laser and the excimer laser are triggered via a computer.

Why Femto-LASIK?

• Femto-LASIK leads to extremely accurate and safe results.
• The preparation of the corneal flap by laser is significantly safer and more precise than with a mechanical cutting blade.
• The thickness and diameter of the corneal flap are individually determined. Above all the thickness of the flap can be extremely accurately controlled. So people who tend to have a thin cornea can be treated safely with the femtosecond laser.
• The recovery period after the procedure is equally as painless, except for a temporary foreign body sensation and an increase in tears.
• The sight’s recovery period is very short as the corneal flap protects the surgical wound like a plaster produced naturally by the body and therefore vision can rapidly normalise itself.
• You can already pursue your usual activities a few days after the procedure.
• Sight is stable after approx. 4–8 weeks.

Get rid of your eyeglasses!
