Two decades after laser eye treatments became available, the field of eye surgery has seen immense advancements. There are new procedures that help more patients. They apply to even those who might not have qualified for eye surgery before.
Advanced technologies and high-tech innovations have helped transform the ophthalmology field. The new treatment options make eye surgery more accurate and faster. The Zeiss VisuMax Femtosecond Laser is one of these newest advancements in the field.
VisuMax Femtosecond Laser
The Zeiss VisuMax® femtosecond laser is characterized by its outstanding flap-making precision, unsurpassed speed, and gentle treatment technique.
Contact Lenses Customized for the Patient
The VisuMax laser helps create a curved contact surface to maximize patient comfort. Contact lenses are customized to suit the patient’s physiology and anatomy perfectly. Unlike traditional lasers, advanced procedures produce a more natural fit.
It helps reduce pressure on the eye. The pressure reduction means that the patient can retain vision in the process.
More Precision and Less Energy
VisuMax laser energy settings are precise and require less energy than other lasers. Less energy is vital when treating sensitive corneal tissue. High-precision optics produce a focused laser beam to the required ablation depth. The tissue outside the defined treatment area remains untouched during the procedure. The result is more accurate, gentler, and delicate flaps.
Total Visual Control
The integrated ZEISS surgical microscope is high quality. It helps enhance visual control during the procedure. The digital video camera allows for live recording during the procedure. It helps ensure precision and control of each step of the treatment. The surgeon can see what he is doing, which helps eliminate potential errors.
Enhancing Comfort and Efficiency
Advanced technologies allow vision correction procedures to be comfortable and efficient. The VisuMax comes with a highly sophisticated treatment bed, ensuring maximum comfort. During the procedure, the doctor monitors the patient’s position.
It helps maintain the perfect contact pressure necessary for flap creation. The laser pulse frequency ensures efficiency, resulting in a shorter duration of treatment. It takes around 15 to 20 seconds to create each flap.
