Femto LASIK is a bladeless refractive eye surgery that allows you to see clearly from every angle.

Besides glasses and contact lenses, currently, there are several advanced technologies for vision correction, such as traditional, laser-assisted surgery, and Implantable Collamer Lenses (ICL). A bladeless refractive eye surgical technique, also known as Femto LASIK, is the most popular refractive surgical technique because it is more precise, safe, and comfortable for the eyes. This type of surgery can be performed on patients with thin, abnormal sized or curved corneas, or small eyes.
Femto LASIK is different from the traditional LASIK because in the traditional method, a flap is incised by a cutting tool, and then the excimer laser is used to reshape the cornea to the proper vision correction. In the new surgery, every step is done using a laser, from creating a flap to reshaping the cornea. Therefore, this type of surgery has a higher degree of precision and is superior overall to traditional LASIK.
The advantages of Femto LASIK
Laser-assisted surgery is an innovative and effective technology that can help people who have vision problems and are uncomfortable wearing glasses and contact lenses to correct nearsightedness or farsightedness. The bladeless refractive eye surgery has been developed to be gentler to the eyes, allowing the patients to feel more comfortable, and enjoy a shorter surgery time. It’s also safer than traditional laser-assisted eye surgery, and there is no pain, so there is no need to inject anesthetics. It can also reduce the risk of suffering a scratched cornea (Corneal abrasion), allow faster healing of the corneas, and a shorter recovery time. This surgery can safely and permanently help correct vision problems.
Who is suitable for Femto LASIK?
Those interested in Femto LASIK should have had stable eyesight for at least 1 year and not have had any diseases related to the eyes or corneas such as Keratoconus, or Macular Degeneration. Nevertheless, we recommend you to consult your doctor to explore the treatment method that best suits your condition.
