A partial thickness corneal flap with a hinge is created using an ultrafast laser - the Femtosecond Laser.

The Femtosecond Laser is highly precise, allowing the surgeon to customise the flap to the desired diameter, thickness and position to suit each eye’s parameters, thereby increasing safety of the procedure.

The creation of the flap using Femtosecond Laser takes less than 20 seconds.

The flap is subsequently lifted to expose the underlying corneal bed for Excimer Laser treatment.
