Overview Femto LASIK
The Femto laser, which was developed in the early 1990s, allowed surgeons to make a corneal flap for LASIK with a laser rather than using a mechanical cutting tool. The flap may be replaced without stitches after surgery, allowing for speedier healing.
In-situ keratomileusis (LASIK), a form of laser eye surgery, employs the femtosecond (Femto) laser. This technique, as well as other refractory operations, is used to reshape the cornea of the eye in order to cure visual difficulties. The surgery is usually an outpatient procedure, meaning the patient does not have to stay overnight in a hospital.
The femtosecond laser uses very short pulses of energy to create a clean cut without damaging the surrounding tissue. This results in a flap that is less likely to cause side effects such as glare and halos.

Femto LASIK Procedure
Numbing drops will be administered to your eyes. An eye speculum will be used to keep your eyelids open throughout the operation. A suction ring is then positioned over the pupil and suction is applied. To maintain the globe of the eye steady and flatten the cornea, a glass lens is used.
Your eye surgeon will administer the first treatment once the laser has been focused on the surgical region. The laser is used to create a corneal flap, and suction is released as a result of the pulses. The flap is then gently peeled back to expose the cornea, which is reshaped with an excimer laser using ultraviolet radiation to treat your condition. You may hear a ticking or smell burning during this stage of the treatment.
In Femto LASIK, the flap is reinstated after the reshaping procedure has been completed. There will be no sutures required for the flap to heal in place. The entire operation, including eye drops and under-eye makeup application, should take no more than 30 minutes for each eye. After the treatment, be sure to have a ride home from someone.
Benefits of Femto LASIK

- If desired, the cutting operation may be stopped, modified, and restarted as needed.
- The elimination of frequently recurring problems with the epithelium after age 40 in flaps created by hand.
- Even when the diameter is smaller, a larger surface to be treated, so there are constraints on side effects compared to the micromechanical cut.
- Inflammation and infections are less likely.
- The risk of flaps folding and shifting is reduced.
- A more consistent result.
- A small number of re-do’s
