What is the difference between LASIK and Femto-LASIK?
Envision Eye Centre perform the latest LASIK procedure known as Femto-LASIK. With traditional LASIK, a controlled blade (microkeratome) is used to create the flap (a hinged piece of corneal tissue). With Femto-LASIK, a highly precise flap is quickly created with the Carl ZEISS Visumax Femtosecond laser removing the need for a blade.
What is involved in the LASIK procedure?
Step 1: Creating the flap
A flap is created with a highly precise femtosecond laser.
Step 2: Folding back the flap
The flap is gently folded back, exposing the inner corneal tissue to be treated.
Step 2: Correct the error
An excimer laser reshapes the corneal tissue, correcting the refractive error.
Step 4: Reposition the flap
The flap is returned to its original position, protecting the eye like a natural bandage.
