What is Z-LASIK?
LASIK is a two-stage procedure in which first a hinged flap is created on the cornea, This flap is lifted back and the surface underneath is reshaped, thus changing the focusing power, by an Excimer Laser –AMARIS.
The traditional method of Laser Vision Correction, (LASIK) requires a mechanical blade to make an incision in the top layer of the corneal tissue prior to the correction itself. But sometimes the blade procedure can create an uneven surface, a dicentered flap or free flap that can affect the quality of vision.
In the second step the final reshaping of the cornea is performed using an Excimer Laser based on your refractive errors and desired visual outcome. After applying desired frequency of Laser on cornea, the flap is then replaced to its original position, where it adheres naturally. The entire procedure takes only a few minutes and is pain-free.
Z-LASIK OR Bladeless LASIK corrects your vision using laser surgery from the beginning to end with Femto Laser Z4 to create Flap and Excimer Laser to correct refractive errors. It is state of the art technology and the risk for complications is reduced even further and the quality of post-operative vision exceeds other methods and techniques.
What is Femto Laser Z4
A Femto-second Laser ( Z4) is a high-frequency laser, which uses ultra-short pulses of invisible light. It is designed to gently separate the outer layers of the cornea, creating a customized flap for each patient, precisely, safely and painlessly. Femto Laser helps the Surgeon to create uniplaner flaps. It can also any size hinge and flap edge of any angle for better apposition post operative. Femto Z4 offers Instrastromal pocket incisions for inlays for presbyopia treatment. This helps in tailor-made customized Presbyopic LASIK correction for patients.
Based on clinical experience from over 1.5 million successful Z-LASIK procedures, the FEMTO systems stand out as the femto second lasers with a remarkably low complication rate.
