What is Femto-Lasik eye surgery?
Femto-Lasik or Z-Lasik is the most efficient technology currently available within the field of laser eye surgery. Lasik stands for ‘laser-assisted in situ keratomileuses’ and in this case the most recent type of laser: the Femtosecond is used.
The Femtosecond laser method involves the cutting of a microscopically thin flap on the surface of the cornea, after which the laser is used to correct any existing refractive errors. With Femto-Lasik, we can easily and successfully treat eye dioptre prescriptions between -12 and +6.
Older techniques could sometimes lead to permanent dry eyes. The state-of-the-art Femto-Lasik method, together with sufficient preoperative care, has drastically reduced this risk. Any temporary decrease in tear production can be treated with lubricating eye drops and tear duct (lacrimal) plugs.
How LASIK Works
This medical animation depicts Laser Eye Surgery, a procedure that permanently changes the shape of the cornea, the clear covering over the front of the eye.
What are the different surgery methods?
A-Cat: Femto-Lasik with aberrometry
We now possess sophisticated diagnostic devices that can register extremely subtle refractive errors. These aberrations are so tiny that glasses or contact lenses cannot help. Treatment of specific aberrations (the A-Cat option) can offer more night vision contrast to those people with widened pupils.
T-Cat: Femto-Lasik with topography
A cornea is usually regular in the form (spherical and toric). For some patients, such as those with keratoconus, asymmetrical or irregular astigmatism can only be seen when using topographical imaging. If the surgeon thinks you are a candidate for topography, he will tell you about the T-Cat option.
When using Femto-Lasik therapy for hypermetropia and presbyopia, vision can start to decline within a few years. Until recently, this meant retreatment. Thanks to the Avedro UV Crosslinking technique, retreatment is no longer necessary. With this technique, we treat the eye after the Lasik procedure with UV light to encourage the attachment of collagen fibers onto the cornea. This means that the new corneal form will be stable.
Who is a good candidate ?
Now, nearly everyone with nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hypermetropia), or astigmatism can be treated using the Femto-Lasik method.
If patients are between 18 and 60 years old the refractive errors between -12 and +6 not undergone any changes during the past year can be treated with the Femto-Lasik method.
Infantile cleft palate or harelip is a congenital defect and smoking during pregnancy is one of the most important causes of this defect.
Certainly, the physician’s opinion is the first thing to consider when examining a person’s condition, but overall anesthesia is better than topical anesthesia if all standards are met.
Femto-LASIK eye surgery cost
The actual price you pay for LASIK surgery, however, depends on many factors, including the experience and reputation of your surgeon and the type of technology used for your procedure. The average cost of Femto- LASIK surgery performed in the United States is about $4000 for both eyes. The cost ranges $3,500 for both eyes in Australia. The price of eye surgery with the latest laser technology Femto LASIK in some European countries like Belgium is 2200 EUR for both eyes. However, the cost of Femto- LASIK surgery in India decreases to $900 for both eyes.
Just like other eye surgeries, Iran is one of the low-cost countries in the world that perform FemtoLasik eye surgery with the most recent technologies. Foreign patients traveling to Iran to perform this surgery are referred to the best hospitals such as Noor eye clinic by Silk Road company and can perform it for less than 300$.
