A technical revolution in ocular surgery
Ziemer’s proprietary FEMTO LDV systems are based on a radically different technology. With their unique operating concept, the FEMTO LDV systems have already become the technology leader among all femtosecond lasers.
Microscope lens quality optics
Operating with very low pulse energy (nJ) and very short pulse width but very high pulse frequencies (> 5 MHz), the threshold for tissue disruption is reached without requiring an amplifier.
This low energy delivery has turned out to be the most relevant factor for a gentle tissue resection:
The FEMTO LDV Z Models feature a hand-piece with a highly sophisticated optical system: an optomechatronical masterpiece.
These custom made microscope lenses with high numerical aperture assure a perfect focus and ensure high precision in cutting depth:
High density pulse raster
Standard pulse rasters by conventional laser systems:
An incomplete resection may lead to tissue-bridges: the flaps cannot be easily lifted and there is more mechanical stress on the eye.
High density pulse raster by Ziemer’s FEMTO LDV systems:
The precision optics, the custom-made laser sources and a proprietary high speed scanning system generate tightly focused low-energy laser pulses in an overlapped pulse raster.
This results in a complete and smooth resection with no interstitial, un-dissected spaces andminimal complications.
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.
