The most recent method is the RELEX technique, in which only the FEMTOSECOND-laser is used.

relexBy means of little gas bubbles two flaps are made in the cornea at different depths. In this way an ultra-thin lens is created, corresponding to the refractive error that is to be corrected. The surgeon then only has to open the flap on the surface and remove the loose lens. After repositioning of the flap the treatment is complete.

At this time this fast and almost ‘no-touch’ technique is only available for myopia and the combination of myopia and astigmatism.

This technique is painless during as well as after the surgery.
