Clinical research

FEMTO LDV Z8 - Cataract
Efficient workflow and short learning curve for cataract surgery with FEMTO LDV Z8

FEMTO LDV Z8 - Case study 
Ziemer's Z8 femtosecond laser in case with previous radial keratotomy and tamulosin

FEMTO LDV Z Models - Pulse energy
Corneal cuts with a nJ-energy femto laser results in less cell death and reduced profibrotic markers

FEMTO LDV Z6 -  Inverse DSEK
Corneal grafts extracted with the LDV Z6 result in in more precise thickness, minimal cell loss

Correcting Post-RK Hyperopia with High Frequency, Low Energy FEMTO

Low pulse energy flap creation results in significantly less post-op DLK

FEMTO LDV Z Models - LASIK Visual recovery
Rapid visual recovery after low energy, thin flap femtosecond LASIK

The FEMTO LDV Z2, Z4, Z6 and Z8 are CE marked and FDA cleared. For some countries, availability may be restricted due to regulatory requirements; please contact Ziemer for details. Presbyopia treatments occur exclusively by a pocket creation and the implantation of a corresponding corneal inlay of a third party. Availability of related corneal inlays and implants may vary according to policy of the individual manufacturers and regulatory status in the individual countries. To comply with FDA regulations, devices for sale in the U. S. do not mention 'Presbyopia' on the panels.
