Laser Vision Correction
FEMTO LASIK is also known as blade-free LASIK, all-laser LASIK, or bladeless LASIK. It can treat a wide range of vision problems including short-sightedness, long-sightedness and astigmatism.
The surgeon uses two types of lasers for the vision correction procedure. The first is the very sophisticated femtosecond laser used to create high precision, thin corneal flap, and then, the excimer laser is used to reshape the underlying corneal tissue or stroma. The flap is then replaced to ensure crystal clear vision, with no blades used.
The eyes is anesthetized with special drops. Femtosecond laser pulses are use to create a flap on the surface of the cornea
The prepared flap is folded back like the page of a book, exposing the inner corneal tissue to be treated
The excimer laser removes the corneal tissue point by point within a few second, thereby correcting the visual defect.
Afterward, the flap is returned to its original position, protecting the eye much like a natural bandage.
