LASIK, the most popular and most widely used procedure for vision correction, has been perfected in millions of successful operations over the past 20 years. Now, with Femto-LASIK, a technologically advanced system is available to bring top-quality LASIK to every refractive practice
Femto-LASIK is a LASIK procedure performed with the Ziemer FEMTO LDV Femtosecond Surgical Laser in conjunction with any one of the leading excimer lasers. At Persian Eye Clinic, we have combined the Ziemer FEMTO LDV Femtosecond Surgical Laser with the Bausch & Lomb Zyoptix Eximer Laser. Integration of these state of-the-art technologies provide us with the best currently available treatment for superior vision
Femto-LASIK is a completely different treatment in fundamental ways. Ziemer's FEMTO LDV is not just another femtosecond laser, similar to Intralase, Femtec, or Zeiss. Compared to these conventional femtolasers, the FEMTO LDV operates at pulse rates that are orders of magnitude higher, pulse energies that are much lower, and delivery optics that are very tightly focused for maximum tissue disruption in the focal spot and no thermal or radiation effects to the surrounding tissue. Unlike other femtolaser-based treatments, Femto-LASIK is a highly integrated procedure, giving surgical teams a time-efficient workflow
If you were previously not a LASIK candidate, Ziemer Ophthalmic Systems FEMTO LDV® might change the situation. This new technology may allow patients who were denied LASIK, due to cornea thinness and other conditions, to now qualify as a candidate for the surgery. Please contact us directly for a second opinion.
Ziemer Ophthalmic Systems received FDA clearance in 2007 for its FEMTO LDV® (Da Vinci Femtosecond Laser), an improved method of ALL-LASER LASIK. This technological advancement provides patients increased safety than the older Intralase® system.
The FEMTO LDV® femtosecond laser uses more precisely focused laser pulses at thousands of times less energy per pulse than Intralase®, which makes it even safer. Persian Eye Clinic is the first LASIK vision correction facility in Iran to offer this advanced technology.
The FEMTO LDV® creates a LASIK flap with more accuracy than any laser in its class. After the femtosecond laser creates the corneal flap, the excimer laser is used to correct vision. The FEMTO LDV® femtosecond laser is completely bladeless and uses extremely low density rapid laser pulses to create the corneal flap (essential to the LASIK procedure). The low-density approach of FEMTO LDV® technology is a main factor in improved overall safety. This gives our patients faster healing time and faster visual recovery than any other technology in the world
Ziemer's FEMTO LDV, the first compact, mobile femtosecond surgical laser, has been conceived to provide a versatile, powerful platform for a wide spectrum of applications in corneal surgery. The basic system addresses the demand of refractive surgeons for an "all-Laser LASIK" capability that is consistent with an efficient LASIK work-flow. The solution by Ziemer is based on an all-new femtolaser design concept that seamlessly integrates into LASIK procedures and corneal surgery
Due to its unique hand-held laser delivery system, which is attached to an easily maneuverable articulated arm, patients can be treated on the patient bed of the excimer laser and do not have to be relocated between flap creation and ablation procedures. The surgeon can perform and control the entire procedure from a single working position, without having to move about or changing microscopes. This revolutionary design concept entails several major advantages in clinical practice
As the FEMTO LDV’s laser energy is deployed from a hand-piece, which is placed on the patient’s eye and manually controlled by the surgeon, a procedure results that resembles the operation of a traditional microkeratome. The sterile single-use parts of the hand-piece, which are provided in convenient, assorted ProcedurePacks, are assembled before the procedure is started and before the patient’s eye is touched. Similarly, the components are disassembled after the complete (usually bilateral) procedure is completed
