New Femtosecond Laser Brings Eye Surgery Innovation to Birmingham
As a highly experienced eye surgeon who has performed over 20,000 laser vision correction procedures, Mark Wevill is committed to staying up-to-date with technological advances in the field. In order to offer Mark’s patients the best possible treatment, hundreds of thousands of pounds have been invested in the new Zeiss Visumax femtosecond laser by Optegra Birmingham Eye Hospital. So, the laser is available to patients wanting LASIK at Laser Eye Surgery Birmingham.
This incredibly precise femtoseconds laser gently cuts tissue with thousands of pulses of low energy laser. (If you’re wondering, a femtosecond is a millionth of a billionth of a second!) The Visumax is used to prepare the eye for LASIK laser eye surgery by accurately creating a contact lens-shaped ‘flap’ of tissue, before the cornea below is precisely reshaped with Zeiss Mel 90 laser for correcting vision. Nowhere else in Birmingham will you get the precision of two Zeiss lasers for your LASIK laser eye surgery.
Gentler and safer than other femtosecond lasers, the Visumax exerts less pressure on the eye during treatment. This means that the patient will experience no discomfort, vision blackouts or bruising.
Patients who have been treated with Visumax LASIK surgery are delighted with the results. For example, Lisa W said: “I can’t believe how easy that was. It wasn’t uncomfortable at all and I can see now! Thank you so much, Mark.”
The Visumax is the only femtosecond laser with the ability to carry out the innovative SMILE vision correction technique. Watch this space, as we will have some very exciting news about the SMILE procedure soon.
