Femto-Lasik and Femto-Super-Lasik is the most efficient technology currently available within the field of laser eye surgery. Lasik stands for ‘laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis’ – the method involved in this type of procedure. Femto represents the technology, in this case the most recent type of laser: the Femtosecond.
The Femtosecond laser method involves the cutting of a microscopically thin flap on the surface of the cornea, after which the Excimer laser is used to correct any existing refractive errors. With Femto-Lasik, we can easily and successfully treat eye dioptre prescriptions between -12 and +6.
The Center Vision Recovery uses the Teneo Technolas 317 Excimer laser and the Victus Technolas Femto laser. Both of these devices are considered state-of-the-art.
The combination of both of these devices guarantees predictable and reliable results and extreme precision using a quick, painless and safe technique.
Advantages of Femto-Lasik
- Optimal safety :
Highly reduced risk of complications when cutting the corneal flap.
Reduced risk of infection and inflammation
Larger treatable surface for increased stability
Reduction in retreatment rates
- Thinner flap:
The Femto-Lasik allows for such a thin, uniformly cut corneal flap that complications are practically non-existent. With these thinner flaps, more corneal tissue is left behind, meaning not only an increase in long-term corneal stability, but also the opportunity to correct higher refractive errors.
- Even flap thickness:
When using the Femto-Lasik, the surgeon knows beforehand which form, thickness, measurements and capacity each flap entails. This is an important issue when considering treatment for higher refractive errors. When using a scalpel, a surgeon can only know how the flap will look after the cut has been made.
- Other benefits:
Eyeball measurements are of little importance for Femto-Lasik laser eye surgery.
You will heal in a shorter span of time and your sight will improve much more quickly.
Visual results are excellent.
During the procedure, the Femto-Lasik laser exercises less pressure on the eye. This means the patient will experience very little discomfort.
