WITH ADVANCED Z-LASIK FROM VIRGINIA BEACH EYE CENTER
Virginia Beach, Virginia, June 20, 2013- Virginia Beach Eye Center’s ophthalmologists Dr. Samuel N. Garrett and Dr. Christopher J. Kurz have surveyed, researched and chosen to offer patients what is now hailed as the latest in “all-laser LASIK” surgical system . It is the Ziemer Z-LASIK, technologically the most advanced procedure evolved from over 2,000,000 LASIK surgeries worldwide. This state-of-the art procedure combines the best visual results with the highest comfort and speed.
WHAT IS Z-LASIK?
Z-LASIK is an all-laser LASIK procedure performed with the Ziemer FEMTO LDV Femtosecond Surgical Laser in conjunction with the excimer laser. With the combined use of state of-the-art lasers and diagnostic equipment, Z-LASIK provides the best available treatment for superior vision correction and ushers in the next era of bladeless, all-laser LASIK, improving accuracy, safety and comfort. Traditional LASIK procedures form a flap with a microkeratome, a mechanical device using a blade. With Z-LASIK the need for a blade is eliminated. The femtosecond laser fires tens of million of tiny pulses under the surface of the cornea to create an ultra-thin flap, allowing better flap predictability and precision.
THE Z-LASIK DIFFERENCE
“Much has been integrated into Z-Lasik advances,” says Dr. Garrett, “which, contrasted to other femtosecond lasers, is an efficient procedure that increases safety, reduces side effects, and involves a much shorter, more timely surgery.” Unlike other femtolaser-based treatments, Z-LASIK is a highly integrated procedure, creating smooth even surfaces with no tissue damage from high energy and providing rapid healing and visual recovery.
