It’s the most performed laser surgery for myopia in the USA.
It uses a specific instrument called Femto Laser to precisely cut a this circular layer (or flap) from the corneal surface. This layer is flipped and placed on the side.
Once the inner cornea portion is exposed, it’s time for the excimer laser ray to remodel it, just like in traditional LASIK, correcting myopia and astigmatism (if necessary).
Dr. Badalà performs this eye laser surgeries for myopia in Milan, Rome and Catania since this technology became available in 2008.
