Course 21-207  Femto-LASIK: Blade-Free, Flap-Free, Excimer-Free Technique

Tuesday, April 21, 2015: 10:00 AM-11:30 AM
Room 7B (San Diego Convention Center)

Course Description
Course will discuss a blade-free, flap-free femto-Lasik system. Refractive lenticule Extraction–small-incision lenticule extraction eliminates the need for the excimer laser because the entire procedure is performed using a femtosecond laser. No corneal flap is created; the entire surgery is performed through a small incision of 2 clock hours through which a corneal lenticule according to the patient's refractive error, is extracted. The course will discuss the various options, advantages, and challenges of this procedure and results and complications through video-based presentations.
