VisuMax® Zeiss 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 only one of 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.
Therefore, by means of the acquisition of this equipment, our clinic, Ama Optimex, became the first and the only 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.
Femtolaserul VisuMax® 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 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. By means of its sophisticated technology, precision and reliability, it has already impressed both patients and physicians in FemtoLASIK 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, 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 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 performance of the surgery, this procedure provides a high stability of the cornea. More details on this technique can be found here.
