OptoSystems showcased newest solution for laser-aided vision correction

31 Jan '14
OptoSystems, a Russian medical device developer and resident of the TechnoSpark Nanotech Center in Troitsk just outside Moscow, has come up with a next gen solution for laser-aided vision correction and showcased it last weekend to leading ophthalmosurgeons from all over the world, Rusnano, Russias nanotech giant, reported.

During a workshop held in the WetLab format, a new platform for refractive surgery was presented. The platform consists of Femto Visum, a femtosecond laser system enabling almost noninvasive surgeries without damaging the external layers of the eyes cornea, and Microscan Visum, an excimer laser system used in vision correction.

To achieve the therapeutic goal, both systems are to be used. At the beginning, using the femtosecond laser helps create whats called a valve, which is the corneas upper layer about 100 micrometers thick, which is then elevated and the excimer laser is used to correct a patients vision. After that the corneas upper layer is returned where it was. The approach is said to enable the patient to see a positive impact from the surgery immediately without having to wait until the burned layer of the cornea is healed.

In contrast with the prior generations of ophthalmological systems in which mechanical cutting tools are typically used, the developer claims this new platform makes it possible to perform an operation based only on laser-aided vision correction.
