Millions of patients around the world have benefited from laser eye surgeries, including femtosecond-assisted LASIK or “Femo LASIK”. If you’re looking for highly advanced and safe laser surgery to solve your vision problems, then you must seriously consider this promising technology.
Femtosecond-assisted laser in-situ keratomileusis (Femo LASIK) allows your surgeon to reshape the cornea of your eye and resolve your vision problem by using the laser to create a corneal flap instead of other mechanical cutting tools. It depends on using Femtosecond (FS) laser, which is an infrared laser that was developed in the early 1990s.
Femto LASIK is a great option to correct refractive errors, which occur when the eye faces difficulties bending or focusing light. Also, some clinics offer this technology to correct cataracts in some patients. In sum, here are the benefits and advantages of Femto LASIK:
Femto LASIK is a simple procedure that only takes 30 minutes for each eye. Once you arrived at the clinic, you will be placed in a reclining chair and lie on your back under the laser machine. The steps will include:
Your doctor will use numbing eye drops to prevent discomfort or pain.
To keep your eyelid in place, your doctor will use an eye speculum. They also will use a glass lens to hold the globe of the eye and a suction ring.
Your doctor will start administrating the laser to create a flap on the surface of the cornea.
Once the flap is folded back, your doctor will use ultraviolet rays to reshape the cornea as required.
Finally, your doctor will replace the flap without using sutures.
Femto LASIK is a safe procedure for the majority of patients, but it still poses some potential risks and side effects, such as:

Femto LASIK is a procedure that aims to modify the surface of the cornea and correct vision by directing an excimer laser beam on the layers of the cornea (the transparent outer front part of the eye) to restore its natural vision abilities.
– The Femto-LASIK is a safe procedure and doesn’t cause complications that may affect patients, but all doctor’s instructions should be followed to guarantee that, whether before or during the recovery period.
– In addition, the patient usually does not feel pain during the procedure.
But in very few cases, the patient may feel a slight pressure on the eye for several seconds.
The Femto-LASIK procedure takes between 10 to 15 minutes maximum.
Femto LASIK is carried out through two steps:
– The first step consists of cutting the cornea to allow the excimer laser device to penetrate the eye.
– The second step is for the surgeon to raise the corneal flap and direct an excimer laser beam on the inner corneal layers to repair vision defects.
– Don’t rub your eyes with your hands.
– Women shouldn’t use eye make-up and cosmetics.
– Don’t wear colored contact lenses.
– Avoid swimming at all costs, whether in the sea or in swimming pools.
