All-laser Bladeless Z-LASIK

I was recently asked to explain how the Z-LASIK vision correction surgery is performed in more details.

First things first, what is Z-LASIK?

Z-LASIK is one of most advanced technology for bladeless all-Laser LASIK surgery available today. In the Z-LASIK procedure, your surgeon uses the LDV Femtosecond laser to create the LASIK flap and the Excimer laser to correct your vision by reshaping your cornea.

The LDV Femtosecond laser was developed by the Ziemer Group located in Port, Switzerland and has gained the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for Bladeless LASIK in 2008.

How Z-LASIK Works?

Z-LASIK, as other all-laser LASIK procedures, creates the LASIK flap by applying small fast pulses of femtosecond laser light, not a microkeratome with a blade.

Now let’s watch this video which illustrates how the Ziemer FEMTO LDV Femtosecond Laser creates a corneal flap for a Z-LASIK procedure.
