This video by Dr. Tomita shows why a femtosecond laser with integrated real-time OCT capability is a necessity for corneal surgeons aiming to perform the safest and most efficiant surgical procedure.



Femto LDV Z2, Z4 und Z6 - are powerful devices for performing a broad variety of ocular surgeries. The concept embraces a strategy that grows with the surgeon's practice, offering the latest technology available today, on a platform that is ready for tomorrow. Various cornea and presbyopia treatments are available today, cataract options tomorrow.

Z-LASIK Femto Second Difference

Compared to other femto-LASIK procedures based on older femtolaser technology, Z-LASIK offers many advantages that lead to better results:

Z-LASIK has an extremely low impact on the eye: The procedure takes only a few minutes per eye. The time the laser is in contact with the patient's eye is reduced to a minimum.

Z-LASIK is comfortable and painless: The patient's head is not fixed during the procedure.

Z-LASIK also helps in severe cases: Thanks to the extremely high frequency of the laser pulses, the layers of the cornea are separated with unprecedented precision, creating an ultra-thin flap. Z-LASIK is therefore effective in patients who were previously not candidates for laser surgery. This includes patients with extreme myopia or thin corneas.

No inflammation: The laser energy used for Z-LASIK is about a 100 times less powerful than with other laser procedures. This is more gentle to the corneal tissue and prevents temporary inflammatory reactions of the eye.

Fast result: The recovery period is considerably shorter than for other techniques. Patients are usually able to see well within a few hours.

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.
