4 Ways Femto LASIK is Better
Without using a knife on the eye, a computer-guided laser creates an extremely precise flap on the corneal surface.
Thinner corneal flaps prevent the loss of healthy corneal tissue which decreases healing time. With this surgery, surgeons may be able to correct higher refractive errors.
The complete laser process is a painless procedure due to the numbing drops and the bladeless surgery. During the procedure you will feel some pressure on the eye but no pain.

You can change your life in just 10 minutes with the UAE’s best eye surgeons.
Femtosecond-assisted (Femto) laser in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is a type of laser eye surgery. The laser is used in LASIK surgery to make a hinged corneal flap. As the surgeon lifts the flap, he or she will have access to the part of the eye where the excimer laser will be used. Using the laser, specific refractive corrections are made to the eye. It takes only about 30-60 seconds to complete this step.
The Femto LASIK Difference
Femto LASIK is highly effective for typical farsightedness (hyperopia), near-sightedness (myopia), or astigmatism. Femto LASIK is best for -0.5 D to -8.0 D myopia and hyperopia between +1.00 and +5.00 D spherical equivalent.
Femto LASIK is very effective treatment for Astigmatism up to 4.00 Diopters.
Our specialists can assess your eye with various tests to determine the best course of action. Schedule a consultation.
This is when you cannot see far away objects. This occurs because the cornea has a steeper shape, so refractive surgery reduces its curvature to correct it.
This is when you cannot see objects that are close. This occurs because the cornea is too flat, refractive surgery is used to increase its curvature.
This condition is caused by irregular curving of the cornea, and surgery can be used to reshape the irregular areas.
CONTOURA® Vision by Alcon Wave Light
Femto LASIK eye surgery combined with CONTOURA® Vision’s WaveLight® technology is an advanced topography guided laser vision correction. Using a proprietary measurement system, each eye is mapped with up to 22,000 unique elevation points. In the same way that your fingerprint is unique, CONTOURA® Vision creates a map that’s unique to your eyes. CONTOURA Vision LASIK gives better vision profile than standard UltraLASIK.
With Alcon CONTOURA® Vision, the doctor can use your eye measurements to see your cornea’s peaks and troughs on a unique topographic map to ensure a precise LASIK procedure.
How does it compare to traditional LASIK?
Unlike LASIK, Femto LASIK creates corneal flaps using a different cutting laser called a femtosecond laser. Compared to micorkeratome blades that are used in LASIK, Femtosecond lasers have increased flap precision and accuracy.
In comparison to traditional LASIK, Femto LASIK makes a small flap in the eye surface by using a laser rather than a mechanical tool. This causes the flap to heal faster and cause fewer complications. This procedure will treat myopia, astigmatism and hyperopia.
In contrast SMILE® only treats myopia and astigmatism.
Your eyes are precious and you should have the best type of eye surgery available. FemtoLasik is the gold standard in bladeless eye surgery. FemtoLasik involves the use of a highly precise laser beam to create a microscopically thin corneal flap.
The ultra LASIK procedure removes a thin layer of corneal tissue with a Micro Blade, much like shaving the cornea (Micro Keratome). The difference is that a Laser is used in Femto LASIK while a Microkeratome blade is used in UltraLasik.
If you want a microscopic incision that does not use a blade then FemtoLasik is the best choice!

Bladeless Flap in 6 seconds
Our clinic uses the ZEISS Visumax 800 Femto laser to create a bladeless flap and the Alcon Wave light Ex 500 for the LASIK treatment. The Alcon Wave Light is the most accurate and fastest excimer Laser with 500 pulses per second that can treat 1.0 Diopter of myopia in 1.4 seconds.
This technology is great for its speed, precision and comfort for the patient. With Femto LASIK, no physical instruments are used, and the surgery is completely guided by computer, reducing the risk of complications.
Our founder, Dr. Abdulla Naqi, and the team of surgeons have over 30 years of experience and patients have trusted our clinic with over 16,000 eye surgeries.
We perform weekly eye surgeries and we first opened our clinic in 2013.
Our commitment to all our patients is that they receive the best treatment in terms of quality, trustworthiness, and credibility. Because of our commitment to providing the best eye treatment, the North American Lasik and Eye Surgery Centre are accredited by the Emirates International Accreditation Centre (EIAC).

Frequently Asked Questions
Our surgery provides the most advanced eye correction and cost-effective treatments available. Femto Lasik cost for both eyes is 8,000 AED (2,177 USD / 2,169 EUR).
There is no doubt that Femto LASIK is the more precise, safer, gentler, and most modern procedure in the field of modern eye correction and has replaced UltraLasik as the cutting-edge treatment for vision impairments. It has been used in over 10 million procedures around the world.
We have patients coming for Femto LASIK assessment and surgeries every day. Our surgeons are constantly busy operating All types of vision correction throughout the week. See our testimonials and our social media proof.
A patient typically sees 70-80% of his or her maximal vision correction value following the operation, and full vision within one day.
The results of Femto LASIK are permanent but as you age, changes in your vision will occur. These changes are an effect of the aging process on the crystalline lens– found in the interior of the eye. Treatment and correction of these near vision changes are possible through additional treatment.
In order to qualify you need to meet some requirements stated below:
1. Be at least 18 years old
2. Have a cornea with sufficient thickness
3. Stable vision
4. You are not pregnant or lactating
5. No eye diseases (e.g. keratoconus)
Femto LASIK is one of the world’s most common eye laser procedures. It can treat short-sightedness up to -8 dioptres (dpt), longsightedness up to +6 dpt and astigmatism up to 4 dpt. By creating thinner flaps, femtosecond LASIK offers greater safety and accuracy, allowing more patients to benefit from surgery, while conserving corneal tissue to the maximum.
If you are interested in a Femto LASIK procedure contact us for a free assessment and we will check you corneal thickness and corneal mapping to see if you are suitable for this procedure.
The minimum age for LASIK surgery is 18. After Age 45 laser vision correction is done to correct distant vision only, so a careful consultation is done to address your expectations after age 45.
Yes. The procedure needs you to look into the target green light of the laser to identify the centre of your vision. Our surgeons are excellent at talking to you throughout the procedure. We use eye drops to numb your eyes and you will not feel any pain during the procedure
It can be normal to experience slight dryness or a feeling of tired eyes on the day of the procedure. The eyes are kept comfortable post-procedure by a surgeon-guided regimen of medicated drops and artificial tears.
Post procedure, rest for 6 hours, and stay inside on the day of laser treatment. After that, your eyes needs few days of rest, depending on your individual needs and occupation
You should never rub your eyes. Rubbing your eyes can have harmful side effects– especially directly after a laser vision correction procedure. If you experience itchy or dry eyes use your recommended lubricating drops.
During the first 3 months, some people will need to use lubricating eye drops. Since the flap is thinner and more precise with Femto LASIK, the issue of dry eyes is less common.
No, they are not the same thing. SMILE® vision correction is more superior and provides the same crisp, clear visual results as FemtoLASIK does– but these results are achieved using different technologies and processes. You can learn about the technology of SMILE® eye surgery and see if you qualify
