Unique low energy laser technology for better outcomes

FEMTO LDV lasers are designed for maximal precision and gentle eye surgery. Ziemer laser technology is known for:

  • Low energy per pulse in the nJ range for gentler treatments
  • High repetition rate in the MHz range for fast procedures
  • Overlapping laser spots for complete and smooth resections

The FEMTO LDV Z Models feature a handpiece which works very close to the eye. Because of this, the laser only needs low energy pulses. This allows to overlap the laser spots and therefore have a smooth and complete cut. 


As a comparison conventional laser systems use high energy pulses which cannot overlap and therefore have tissue bridges between the spots.

Different from other lasers, the FEMTO LDV Z Models feature overlapping laser spots that result in:

  • Complete resections
  • No tissue bridges
  • High precision and predictability


 

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.
