LASIK / Femto-LASIK

LASIK,the most frequently performed, the most accurate and the safest refractive eyesurgery, is a two-step procedure that is performed on the cornea. The first step is cuttinga layer (a thin flap) of the corneal tissue. Not many years ago, in the classic LASIK procedure, this corneal lamella (flap) was prepared with a microkeratome (a surgical precision instrument with an oscillating blade), however nowadays the femtosecond laser prepares the flap–without any use of mechanical blades. This increases the accuracy and safety of the surgery to a large extent. Femto-LASIK is the combination of Excimer laser and Femtosecond laser, and is one of the best methods for correcting refractive errors.
