It is one of the eyes treatment techniques used in the treatment of hyperopia, myopia and astigmatism.In this treatment, valve preparation is done with a laser called “Femtosecond laser”. You can learn about femto lasik laser with this article.
In this treatment, valve can be prepared in the planned thickness, diameter and depth for patients with small eyes and a thin cornea. The stages after valve incision and the follow-up of the operation are the same as in the standard lasik.
The valve prepared in the treatment of femto lasik is stable. After the operation, it is better for the valve to be attached to the cornea and heal.
With femto lasik treatment, it is aimed to correct myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. After the operation, values below 0.50 are considered successful and the patient does not need to wear glasses anymore.

If there is a structural defect in the cornea (corneal dystrophy, keratoconus, etc.)
People who have not changed their refractive error in the last year and who are over the age of 18 are suitable candidates for this treatment. Whether femto lasik surgery will be applied or not can be decided after the examination.
During the examination, the thickness, biomechanical strength and slope of the corneal tissue are evaluated. It is investigated whether there is any problem such as keratoconus, severe dry eye and cataracts that may prevent surgery. In addition, it is evaluated whether there is strabismus and a detailed retinal examination is performed. With retinal examination, retinal holes and tears are also detected. If a problem is detected in the retina, the patient should be evaluated by retina specialists.
In hypermetropia, refractive defects of about 6 astigmatism, 6 myopia, about 10 or less, can be treated with Femto LASIK.
The patient will not feel pain during the operation. You may feel a slight pressure in the eye during the operation. The operation is performed on the 2 eyes in the same session, one after the other. The surgery is completed in a very short time. The operation time is 10 – 15 minutes for both eyes. The stages of the surgery are as follows:
It is seen depending on the vacuum applied in the surgery. It disappears spontaneously in about 4 weeks. It does not cause any pain.
Dry eyes may occur for a while after the operation. This problem will be eliminated with the tear drops used in the treatment.
Depending on the degree of the refractive error, there may be numbing left in the eye at different rates. Your doctor will inform you about this issue before the surgery.
Ectasia occurs when laser is applied to an eye whose corneal topography and thickness are not suitable. Although it is very rare, it can be seen postoperatively in the cornea with sufficient thickness and structure.
It is an allergic reaction. It can be treated by washing the eyes with serum or increasing the frequency of use of the drops used in the treatment.
Lasik surgery does not prevent any eye surgery that may be required in the future.
