Femto Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery (FLACS)
Initially used in LASIK surgery, femtosecond laser technology has evolved to offer the latest technique in performing cataract and lens replacement procedures, providing unprecedented accuracy and precision.
The Ziemer Z8 laser can now be used to complete some of the critical steps of cataract and lens replacement surgery with repeatable accuracy down to 1/1000th mm. This includes the entry incisions, capsulorhexis and softening or fragmenting the nucleus. These lasers use very short pulses (femtosecond) of energy, which create tiny gas bubbles and employ the same principles that we have been using in LASIK for some years
For patients seeking the most advanced and accurate surgical procedure, laser cataract surgery is at the forefront and remains unsurpassed. This technology offers a reproducible technique to replace the less predictable and most technically demanding steps of conventional cataract surgery.
LaserVision was initially founded in Guildford, Surrey. Now with clinics in over 6 locations, we are able to treat the eye conditions of patients nationwide. This treatment is available at:
