LASER OPERATION TECHNIQUES

The operation consists in directing an extremely high-precision laser beam at the cornea in order to alter its curve (shape). Each impact takes off 0.25 microns. It is used for personalised myopia, astigmatism, hypermetropia and presbyopia treatment.

OUR LASERS:

 

• LASER EXCIMER TENEO 317 (PRESBYTIE)
• LASER FEMTO SECONDE ZIEMER Z4 allows the femtolasik method (100% laser surgery)

THERE ARE TWO SURGICAL TECHNIQUES TO CORRECT THESE VISION DEFECTS:

PKR or surface treatment, in which an excimer laser is pointed directly at the surface of the cornea. You may feel a little pain after the operation (like sand in your eye) and it takes about two weeks to recover full vision.

FEMTO LASIK (OUR ZLASIK) 100% LASER TECHNIQUE consists in cutting out a thin surface flap of the cornea (a thickness of 90 to 120 microns) with a femto second laser. This flap (or cover) is delicately folded open so that laser treatment can be applied with the excimer laser through the thickness of the cornea. The surgeon then folds the flap back into place and it heals without a trace. 
This painless operation helps recover full vision within hours, meaning that both eyes can be treated the same day. 

Secured surgery: more than 2 millions operations in the world.

Quick: about 10 to 15 minutes.

Side effects:

  • The possible appearance of halos and/or a tendency to be easily dazzled at night (night driving)

  • Sensitivity to light or smoke

  • Dry eyes

These effects fade and disappear as the eye heals, i.e. after about one month.
In very rare cases, the correction may not be complete, requiring a simple laser touch-up.
The slightest doubt as to the proper application of verification and safety procedures will postpone the session.
