    FEMTO LASIK (Bladeless LASIK)

    FemtoLASIK, also known as bladeless LASIK whereby a flap is created using Femtosecond laser and the refractive correction is done using Excimer laser. It is a highly precise and safe procedure and allows the Refractive Surgeon to tailor the procedure according to the characteristics and vision problem of each individual patient. 

    How the Procedure is Done:

    Step 1 
    Creating the flap 
    A flap is created with a highly precise femtosecond laser. 


    Step 2 
    Relocating the patient 
    The patient is conveniently moved from the femtosecond llaser to the excimer laser. 


    Step 3 
    Folding back the flap 
    The flap is gently folded back,exposing the inner corneal tissue to be treated. 


    Step 4 
    Correcting the error 
    An excimer laser reshapes the corneal tissue, correcting the refractive error. 


    Step 5 
    Repositioning the flap 
    The flap is returned to its original position, protecting the eye like a natural bandage. 



    - More precise flap creation: The femtosecond laser is a very precise device, and it can create a flap that is very thin and uniform. This can help to reduce the risk of flap related complications. 

    - Lower risk of complications: Femto LASIK does not involve the usage of a blade, so there is a lower risk of flap complications such as buttonhole, free flap, incomplete flap. 

    - Faster recovery: Femto LASIK patients typically recover their vision faster. This is because the femtosecond laser creates a thinner flap, which allows the cornea to heal more quickly. 

    - Less pain: FemtoLASIK is generally considered to be less painful than Surface Ablation procedures 

    - Easier to customize: The femtosecond laser can be used to create a flap that is customized to the individual patient's needs. This can help to ensure that the patient achieves the best possible vision results. 

    FemtoLASIK is generally suitable for most people who are considering refractive surgery. However, there are some specific conditions that may make you ineligible for FemtoLASIK, including: 

    ~ Very thin corneas: If your corneas are too thin, FemtoLASIK may not be an option for you. 

    ~ Prescription too high: If you have a very high prescription, all-laser LASIK may not be able to correct your vision to the desired level. 

    ~ Active eye infections or other eye conditions: If you have any active eye infections or other eye conditions, you will need to wait until they are resolved before you can undergo FemtoLASIK. 

    ~ Pregnant or breastfeeding: If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you will need to wait until after you have stopped breastfeeding before you can undergo FemtoLASIK. 

    ~ Active participation in contact sports: If you are actively participating in contact sports, you may need to wait until full recovery before resuming your sports activities. 


    If you have any of these conditions, you should talk to your eye doctor about whether FemtoLASIK is right for you.
