Nanolaser is a laser technique used in certain eye centres for the treatment of cataract. The blurred lens is fragmented via laser impulses and these fragments are then vacuumed away.

FEMTO_LDV_Z8_Hi01 (2)After a thorough evaluation of this method, Focus Eye Clinic decided not to use this technique and opted instead for the precision of the Femto Laser.

Nanolaser vs. Femto laser

After a thorough evaluation, Focus Eye Clinic decisively opted for the Femto Laser technique and purchased the ZIEMER Z8 LDV in 2015.
At the same time, we decided not to purchase a Nanolaser, even though the purchase price was considerably lower.

  1. Water-repellent
    Numerous studies show that incisions made with the Femto Laser are much more water-repellent than incisions performed with blades.
  2. No risk of thermal damage
    Lens core fragmentation is carried out with the closed capsule ZIEMER Z8 Femto Laser; there is therefore no risk of thermal damage due to energy release into surrounding tissues.
  3. Unrivalled precision
    The perfection of capsulorhexis (CCC) produced with the ZIEMER Z8 Femto Laser can not be matched through manual incisions: the precise shape, diameter, and location can be programmed.
  4. Astigmatism
    Low degrees of astigmatism can also be treated with the Femto Laser with great precision: this greatly increases the success of bifocal and multifocal lens implantation.

4 phases

The ZIEMER Femto laser can perform four different phases in laser eye surgery. A Nanolaser, however, can only reproduce 1.

  1. Incision
  2. Fragmentation
  3. Capsulorhexis of the lens
  4. Astigmatism incisions

The Nanolaser technique can only be used in phase 2.
