FemtolaserThe femtolaser, also known as the femtosecond laser, is a new tool that allows the ZLASIK eye surgery to be performed with no knives at all. This is a great development for those who have previously shied away from LASIK due to the need to use a scalpel-like tool to cut a flap into the cornea.
The ability to precisely control the femtolaser allows the surgeon to provide you with results that can be above those gained from traditional LASIK procedures. You will be able to have a procedure that is truly customized to your eyes. You’ll also have a fast recovery thanks to the fact that the femto lasers always produces a smooth surface with the bladeless lasik procedure. These benefits add up to an extremely low complication rate and a great outcome.
With these benefits, it’s no wonder that traditional LASIK surgery has been rendered obsolete by the excimer and femtolaser. But, many surgeons don’t keep up with the times and prefer to stick to methods that they can do in an “assembly line” style; not at Behler Eye, where the most cutting edge techniques such as all laser lasik are practiced.
Here at Behler Eye and Laser Center, we never use assembly line methods. Our prime concern is your sight and your health. Therefore, we take pride in using the best possible methods for our procedures. Our laser eye surgery, known as Z-LASIK, offers all of the benefits you seek and lets you avoid the risks associated with scalpels rather with a bladeless LASIK procedure. If you a living in the Tampa area – in and around St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Tarpon Springs and New Port Richey – contact us today for a consultation with Dr. Behler to discuss the femtolaser procedure in detail and learn how it can give you the sight you’ve been dreaming of!
