Advanced Patient Interface 

To ensure the best possible surgical results and patient comfort, advanced patient interfaces have been developed especially for the FEMTO LDV Z8. 

Liquid Patient Interface 

The proprietary liquid patient interface was developed for cataract surgery. Its gentle docking allows having just a minimal IOP rise during surgery and avoids posterior corneal folds. At the same time, the system guarantees a good transmission of the laser beam.

The procedure starts with applying the small patient interface before docking the laser which allows for maximal visualization and easier, more intuitive docking.  

Applanating Patient Interface 

The applanation interface benefits from the rich experience in corneal surgery from the past decade. It is based on the same principle as previous Ziemer femtosecond laser systems. The stable position of the cornea allows for utmost precision in corneal surgery. The surgeon can choose to dock in one or two steps. 

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.
