The use of lasers for corneal and refractive surgery isn’t a new development. The technique has been used for more than 30 years with great success. However, the technology involved has continued to involve and improve and today, laser vison correction is safer and more accurate than ever before.


At Manhattan LASIK Center, we are committed to investing in the latest innovations so that our patients can benefit from superior safety profiles, pinpoint precision and the most advanced vision correction techniques available. Our Roslyn, NJ LASIK Center is now our second location equipped with the latest and most sophisticated laser for treating nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism – the ZEISS VisuMax Femtosecond Laser.


ZEISS has more than 160+ years of experience in the development of optical systems and medical devices, making them the foremost authority when it comes to laser technology. The new VisuMax system, which is characterized by precision and speed that is unrivaled by other lasers, combined with a gentle treatment technique that offers patients the very best experience.


Unique curved contact surface to maximize patient comfort

Although every patient has a slightly different shaped cornea, they are all curved. The VisuMax system is the only femtosecond laser that uses a curved contact surface that is customized specifically to your individual corneal shape. This ensures a comfortable, natural fit that enables a reduction in pressure placed onto the eye during the procedure. In doing this, the patient can retain their vision during the procedure rather than experience the visual ‘blackout’ that is associated with laser vision correction using other, less advanced lasers. The result? The most rapid and most comfortable creation of a LASIK flap of any laser system available.


Unmatched precision enables minimal laser energy output

Laser energy must be carefully controlled. However, the laser energy management function of the VisuMax enables such absolute precision that this laser can be used with seven times less energy than other varieties. This enables far greater accuracy and control during use, eliminating the risk of damage to tissues outside of those being targeted for treatment. It also ensures maximum patient comfort at every stage of the process.


A superior patient experience

Not only does the latest laser technology offer the best safety profile of any refractive laser vision correction, it also ensures patients have a superior experience from start to finish. The treatment bed itself has been specifically with comfort in mind, and your position will be monitored throughout your procedure so that the contact pressure is kept at optimal levels. The high-speed and extreme accuracy of the VisuMax laser means that it takes less than 20 seconds per eye to create the LASIK flap, and the steady pressure and curved contact surface all serve to make the entire process as relaxed as possible.
