ZEISS VisuMax® is the most advanced and safe femtosecond laser of the moment. This laser enables the performance of diopter correction by means of a quick customized treatment, noiseless, odorless and independent of the environment, with an accuracy of less than one micron, by fulfilling the corneal curvature.
Our clinic is the first one in Romania and one of the few centers of Central and Eastern Europe, equipped with the latest generation of the most precise femtosecond laser: VisuMax – Carl Zeiss Meditec with SMILE platform. With this state-of-the-art technology, we are proud that we provide Romanian patients the safest laser diopter correction methods: FemtoLASIK VisuMax, flap creation with VisuMax and also ReLEx SMILE, the latter is exclusively performed in our clinic.
Zeiss VisuMax® — the safest method for diopters correction
With the help of this technology, we offer the safest laser diopters correction surgeries, FemtoLASIK VisuMax, ReLEx SMILE, PRESBYOND, and ICR (Intrastromal Corneal Ring Segment for keratoconus).
Therefore, in 2014, by the acquisition of this equipment, our clinic, Ama Optimex, became the first refractive surgery center of Romania, which provides complete solutions for the correction of all types of diopters, by using exclusively German technology Carl Zeiss Meditec. From 2020 the femtolaser is used to perform ICR (Intrastromal Corneal Ring Segment for keratoconus).
The Zeiss VisuMax® femtolaser is extraordinary in all main indications of leading-edge cornea surgery. The innovative system of femtosecond laser combines perfectly synchronized components, in order to ensure maximum precision, efficiency, predictability and comfort. Due to the ergonomic and multifunctional design, the position of the patient is comfortable and continuously monitored during the laser surgery and automatically adjusted and corrected, if it is the case.
Carl Zeiss VisuMax® femtosecond laser with SMILE platform
Carl Zeiss VisuMax® femtosecond laser with SMILE platform is the laser system specially designated and used within ReLEx SMILE procedure, provides a micrometer precision in the preparation of the lenticula in the intact cornea. Its sophisticated technology, precision and reliability, it has already impressed both patients and physicians specialized in Femto-LASIK surgery.
In refractive surgery, the cornea is reshaped by the laser, thus modifying its refractive power. The difference between the techniques consists in the way the cornea is reshaped.
In case of ReLEx SMILE with VisuMax, which is currently the state-of-the-art and safest technique for the reduction of the diopters, being the third generation of refractive surgery, VisuMax femtosecond laser with SMILE platform curves out a small lenticule inside the cornea. Subsequently, this lens is extracted through a very narrow channel, of only 2-4 mm, and therefore the corneal curvature radius is modified and the diopters are corrected. The recovery is fast and painless. We would like to invite to find out more on the page dedicated to this technique here.
In case of FemtoLASIK, the second generation of refractive surgery, VisuMax femtosecond laser creates a flap in the cornea. The advantages comparing with the classic LASIK are represented by the form (vertical edges) and by the precision the flap is created, these being the advantages provided by VisuMax femtolaser. After the surgery, this procedure provides a high stability of the cornea. More details on this technique can be found here.
Intrastromal Corneal Ring Segment (ICR) tunnel creation using the VisuMax femtosecond laser platform
Intrastromal Corneal Ring Segment implantation modifies the curvature of the cornea in keratoconus patients by inserting one or two segments into the corneal tissue. Using the femtosecond laser VisuMax from Zeiss, the intrastromal tunnels are created inside the cornea at the precise desired depth, thus making the procedure fast, comfortable and with the lowest risks of intraoperative or postoperative complications. You can find more information about this procedure on our dedicated website, available here.
