Safety and precision with HD LASIK laser eye surgery
HD LASIK laser eye surgery can only be achieved by utilising a femtosecond laser in the first step of the LASIK procedure, to create the corneal flap then the Schwind Amaris excimer laser can reshape the inner layers of the cornea to achieve the desired focusing change. A femtosecond laser is far more accurate in creating a flap of even thickness during your laser eye surgery compared to a bladed microkeratome cutting a corneal flap. A laser created corneal flap is more precise and safer than a bladed microkeratome cutting a flap. A mircokeratome, used by some clinics can place your eye at greater risk of complications produced by the blade such as a "button hole", partial flap or irregular flap.
