Why undergo laser eye treatment?

Laser eye treatment can be a transformative solution for individuals dealing with prevalent refractive errors such as nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness and astigmatism. This advanced procedure not only addresses these visual challenges but also introduces a remarkable shift in daily life, eliminating the need for glasses and contact lenses.

Experience the transformative power of laser eye treatment, where enhanced clarity becomes the cornerstone of a liberated and convenient lifestyle.

How does Z-LASIK work exactly?

During the Z-LASIK procedure, a femtosecond laser with low pulse energy is used to create an ultra-thin flap. With Z-LASIK these laser pulses are significantly smaller than in other Lasik methods, this ensures more precise flaps and a smoother surface. Afterward, the underlying corneal layers are modeled by computer-controlled light pulses with an ablation laser to correct your vision. The flap is then folded back into its original position and reattaches itself.

Z-LASIK – The Power of Low Energy

Preliminary examination

In the preliminary examination, a comprehensive initial evaluation of the patient's eyes is undertaken. Precise measurements are taken to construct a highly detailed map of the cornea with micrometer precision. Through this detailed analysis, unique features and potential risks associated with the patient's eyes are identified, offering essential information before the surgery is undertaken.

Follow-up examination

The first follow-up examination, typically conducted on the day following Z-LASIK surgery, involves a detailed examination of the treated eye using a slit lamp. This examination aims to confirm the success of the Z-LASIK procedure, ensuring that the intended reshaping of the cornea has been achieved for the expected visual improvements. 

What are the benefits of Z-LASIK?

Z-LASIK gives you the freedom of no longer having to worry about misplaced glasses or dealing with the discomfort of contact lenses. Z-LASIK grants you the freedom to focus on what matters to you. 

Z-LASIK has been the preferred treatment for over 20 years, and numerous surgeons possess extensive expertise in performing this procedure.

Usually, vision becomes clearer within a few hours after the procedure and increasingly stable over the following weeks.

Z-LASIK is currently the most widely used method for laser vision correction, and the corresponding technology is available in most eye clinics.

The precision of the laser provides an enormously high level of safety and accuracy in the creation of the flap, which reduces the risk of complications.

Questions? Answers.

Z-LASIK is suitable for the correction of refractive errors such as nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness and astigmatism. The anatomy of the eye is different for each person. Whether Z-LASIK is a suitable method for you can only be assessed during a careful examination by your ophthalmologist.

The procedure takes about 15 minutes, and the laser correction itself is only 35 to 40 seconds.

Every healing process is individual. You can return to your daily routine after about one or two days. The exact duration depends on the patient. Normally, you will be able to drive, work and participate in sports within a few days.

With the Femtolaser technology, the creation of the flap is performed more safely and precisely, which reduces the risk of complications.
