The new Lenticule Applicaton by Ziemer is called CLEAR and stands for:
E Extraction for
R Refractive Correction
The completely new developed and proprietary application is intended for the treatment of Myopia and Astigmatism.
The new Lenticule application is an integrated part of the FEMTO LDV Z8 platform and can be purchased through a software upgrade.
Benefit from various possibilities in faciliating the Lenticule separation and extraction.
The advantages are:
Prof. Luis Izquierdo presented his first data at the ESCRS.
As a pioneer in low energy femtosecond laser treatments, Ziemer adds a new application to the FEMTO LDV Z8 platform: the new Lenticule application CLEAR.
Thanks to the Ziemer handpiece there is a very short working distance to the eye. Therefore, a high focusing power can be achieved and only very little energy per pulse is needed. This allows for small overlapping spots resulting in a smooth cut – only possible with the Ziemer FEMTO LDV's low energy concept.
