Femtosecond Laser Arcuate Keratotomy’s Biomechanical Impact

It has long been assumed, and has only recently become clear, that refractive surgical treatments have an effect on the biomechanics of the membrane. As a result, understanding the underlying biomechanical mechanism of such procedures is even more important. The femto-second optical maser curved incision is one such surgical technique that uses biomechanical effects to treat membrane astigmatism (AK). Manual AK incisions have been used in clinical practise for many years, but have been abandoned by many due to poor outcome certainty. With the femto-second (FS) optical maser becoming more common, the technique is making a comeback in clinics. FS optical maser manufacturers such as Alcon, Bausch+Lomb, Johnson+Johnson Vision, and Ziemer square measure are already capable of chopping arcuates into membrane tissue.
