About Femto-Lasik treatment

The femto-LASIK technique can be used to correct all vision problems: myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and even presbyopia.

The femto-LASIK procedure combines femtosecond laser treatment (cutting of a corneal flap) and excimer laser treatment (treatment of the correction) in order to remodel the cornea.

The femto-LASIK procedure takes place in two stages: first, a femtosecond laser is used to create a corneal flap, which is then removed. The second stage of the procedure involves remodelling the cornea using an excimer laser. Once the laser treatment has been completed, the flap is returned precisely to its original location, without the need for sutures.

Using only a laser to cut the corneal flap guarantees the safety and comfort of this second-generation procedure whilst also allowing a rapid recovery.

Vos questions sur le traitement Femto-Lasik

Can I wear make-up after the operation?

Make-up presents a risk of infections and corneal injury, which is why it is strongly recommended to refrain from using make-up, especially around the eyes, for one week.

How long do I have to wait before I can drive again?

After femto-LASIK refractive surgery, you can drive again from the following day. However, caution is advised when driving at night, as halos may appear that can disrupt your vision.

Can I do sport after undergoing femto-LASIK surgery?

Caution is advised when doing sport. You must wait 1 month before doing contact sports such as karate, judo, handball, basketball, football, swimming and other water activities, etc. You can start jogging or going to the gym again after 7 days.

The SMILE technique can be used to correct myopia and astigmatism at the same time, whilst leaving the surface of the cornea essentially intact.


The PRK technique enables refractive treatment to be performed on the surface of the corneal stroma after removal of the superficial corneal epithelium.


The LBV technique involves applying the principle of monovision, in addition to which a corneal profile is established in order to create depth of field and thereby improve mid-field vision.


The ICL technique involves implanting an intra-ocular lens inside the eye, behind the iris and just in front of the lens.
