FemtoLASIK (Femtosecond assisted laser in-situ keratomileusis) is a form of LASIK used to correct vision problems like nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism by way of deploying laser on the cornea.
What is FemtoLASIK?
The FemtoLASIK procedure is slightly different from Standard LASIK in the first step of LASIK surgery. The Standard LASIK involves a blade (microkeratome) to create a flap on the corneal surface and uses lasers to reshape the cornea. The use of mechanical blades may make irregular flaps or incomplete cuts which might potentially lead to post-surgery complications and irregular astigmatism. Whereas FemtoLASIK, also known as bladeless LASIK or all-laser LASIK does not use the blade, instead it substitutes blade for a femtosecond laser and uses an excimer laser to correct the refractive conditions thereby increasing efficiency, achieving optimum treatment results and the rapid recovery of vision.
By using Lasik, the risk of complications, which might occur while using a corneal flap, reduce drastically. There is also reduced risk of infection and inflammation. There is a larger treatable surface for increased stability, and thus a reduction in retreatment rates
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 microkeratome, a surgeon can only know how the flap will look after the cut has been made.
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.
