Z-LASIK 

Z-LASIK has been performed on millions of eyes across the globe and continues to provide patients with excellent results. Z-LASIK is an enhancement of LASIK which benefits from the FEMTO LDV's proprietary low energy technolgy. It can be performed in a planar way or with fully adjustable border cuts. 

Z-LASIK - the 2D mode

Z-LASIK - the 2D mode

With this unique method across all laser plattforms, the flap resection is created in a planar mode (xy-plane, natural flap border).

  • Natural curvature, non-visible border after surgery
  • Clean flaps with minimal risk of OBL
  • Intuitive as a microkeratome, but with laser precision

Parameters:

Flap thickness 90, 100, 110 or 140 microns
Flap diameter 8.5, 9.0, 9.5 or 10 milimeter
Hinge size Given by the patient interface size
Hinge position Customizable
Side cut/border Planar flap border with approx. 30°

Z-LASIK Z - the 3D mode

Z-LASIK Z - the 3D mode

This Z-LASIK Z method performs the resection in a three-dimensional mode (X, Y and Z axis). Each flap can be customized to accommodate the desired geometry.

  • Fully adjustable flap parameters
  • Customizable side cuts 
  • Adjustments of centration and flap parameters even after docking

Parameters:

Flap thickness 90 - 160 microns
Flap diameter 6.5 - 10 milimeter
Hinge size Customizable
Hinge position Customizable
Side cut/border Customizable

Availability
The FEMTO LDV Z2, Z4, Z6 and Z8 are CE marked and FDA cleared. For some countries, availability may be restricted due to regulatory requirements; please contact Ziemer for details. Presbyopia treatments occur exclusively by a pocket creation and the implantation of a corresponding corneal inlay of a third party. Availability of related corneal inlays and implants may vary according to policy of the individual manufacturers and regulatory status in the individual countries. To comply with FDA regulations, devices for sale in the U. S. do not mention 'Presbyopia' on the panels.
