Laser keratomylosis, or LASIK, is a modern method of forming a superficial corneal flap. Vision is quickly restored. Postoperative complications associated with the formation of a corneal flap are rare. However, in the course of research, more cases of dry eye syndrome were recorded than when using SMILE technology. Femto-LASIK is the most advanced technology with the formation of a corneal flap, which is currently widely used worldwide.
Formation of a corneal flap. Local anesthesia is performed with the help of special eye drops. Using femtosecond laser pulses, a slice of the surface flap is obtained.
Effective interaction. Thanks to the device of the rotary mechanism support system, the patient switches from a femtosecond laser to an excimer laser.
The rise of the corneal flap. The resulting flap bends like a book page, exposing the inner corneal tissue to which the laser will be directed.
Formation of a new corneal surface. The excimer laser, acting pointwise, removes the corneal tissue within a few seconds, thereby correcting vision.
Return the flap to its original position. Then the flap returns to its original position, acting as a natural protection.
