Intro to Femtosecond-Assisted LASIK Surgeries

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.

    Preparation for Femtosecond-Assisted LASIK

    You must speak with your surgeon to discuss the surgery and your expectations. They may prepare for surgery by doing the following:
    • Scan and examine your eye before the day of the procedure.
    • Ask you to remove your contact lenses 1-3 weeks before surgery (if you wear any).
    • Advise you to stop using lotions, creams, or makeup near the eye.
    • Arrange for someone to drive you home after the procedure.

    Steps of Femtosecond-Assisted 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:

    2. Eyelid Stabilization

    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.

    5. Flap Replacement

    Finally, your doctor will replace the flap without using sutures.

    Recovery After Femtosecond-Assisted LASIK

    To get a smooth recovery, you must follow the next instructions after the procedure:
    • Avoid scratching or rubbing your eye and try to wear an eye shield in the first 2 days.
    • Visit your doctor after 2 days to remove the eye shields and check your vision.
    • Use the eye drops that your doctor will give you to prevent infection or inflammation.
    • Avoid swimming and strenuous activities in the days following the surgery.
    • Avoid using makeup, lotions, and creams for two weeks after surgery,
    • Avoid wearing contact lenses even if you complain of blurred vision.
    • Expect some vision fluctuations for the first months after the surgery and expect the final results to manifest after 3-6 months.

    Risks of Femtosecond-Assisted LASIK

    Femto LASIK is a safe procedure for the majority of patients, but it still poses some potential risks and side effects, such as:

    • Seeing glares and halos around lights
    • Extreme sensitivity to light or transient light sensitivity syndrome (TLSS)
    • Unsatisfactory results or reduced effectiveness over time
    • Permanent vision loss

    Frequently Asked Questions

    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.
