At Hashmanis Hospital, our ophthalmologist uses the latest Femtosecond Laser Technology for laser vision correction, including Alcon and Intralase.
The Femtosecond Laser is used in LASIK surgery to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. During the procedure, our experienced surgeons rely on the Femtosecond Laser device to create a corneal flap.
During your pre-operative consultation, our eye care professionals will be able to assess which procedure will suit your eyes.
Types of Femtosecond lasers used at Hashmanis Hospital
- Alcon WaveLight FS200
An innovative bladeless model Alcon WaveLight FS200 Femtosecond laser is a painless procedure that helps to provide patients with the highest standard of precision and reliability.
This vision correction model is used for highly-advanced LASIK treatments and offers customized flap creation options. This laser technology also produces low pulse energy and a unique cutting pattern for accurate flap creation. With a repetition rate of 200 Hz, it is the fastest flap creation laser platform in use today, taking approximately six seconds to create a corneal flap.
- AMO Intralase IFS150 @ 150Hz
The AMO IntraLase IFS150 is one of the types of femtosecond laser technology that offers safe and accurate results. It uses IntraLase Technology, which helps in creating innovative-shaped corneal incisions for full-thickness corneal transplants. The femtosecond model features a repetition rate of 150 Hz, meaning that in every ten seconds, the creation of a LASIK flap takes place. It is one of the fastest femtosecond lasers on the market.
The IntraLase laser creates a bevel-edged flap that allows for a more precise adjustment and repositioning, therefore reducing flap complications. The device uses lower energy per pulse to reduce tissue response and any potential for inflammation.
