Femtosecond laser

What is the femtosecond laser?

The femtosecond laser is a highly precise infrared wave laser. Its main characteristic is its reversibility, since it does not cut or transfer heat in the tissues, but separates them.

The micrometric incisions that the surgeon designs on the computer are micrometrically reproduced by the laser, increasing the speed, safety, and precision of the surgery.

In which cases is it done?

For years the femtosecond laser has been used to treat refractive pathologies (myopia (nearsighted), hyperopia (farsighted), astigmatism), and even for some cases of corneal transplantation.

However, the laser revolution is found in cataract surgery, since it modifies and improves ultrasound phacoemulsification, which has been used for more than a decade. This novel system replaces capsulorhexis with an almost perfect capsulotomy, which ensures the Precision and circular shape of the extracted capsule and doubles the resistance of its edges, where the surgeon places the artificial lens that replaces the crystalline lens. This allows the artificial lens to be better centred and tighter, obtaining a better refractive result.

In summary, it offers better refractive results, increases the safety of the intervention and standardizes the procedure.

Previous exams

A complete ophthalmologic examination should be performed before the operation is scheduled.

Why have vision surgery with the Femtosecond technique at OMIQ?

Because as in other techniques, we are not only one of the few clinics that have the machinery and experience, but the results are 100% satisfactory.

The Femtosecond Laser is one of the most revolutionized techniques in eye surgery in recent years. It is the only one that has managed to replace the cut that was produced manually in the cornea with a much more precise one, ideal for patients with a very thin, very curved or excessively flat cornea.
