LASIK Laser eye Surgery

LASIK (Femto-Lasik) Laser Eye Surgery has been commonly in use for over 15 years. It has become the most widely performed laser method for the correction of refractive sight errors.

What is the difference between LASIK and Femto-LASIK?

Envision Eye Centre perform the latest LASIK procedure known as Femto-LASIK. With traditional LASIK, a controlled blade (microkeratome) is used to create the flap (a hinged piece of corneal tissue). With Femto-LASIK, a highly precise flap is quickly created with the Carl ZEISS Visumax Femtosecond laser removing the need for a blade.
