About Femtosecond Lasers
When performing bladeless LASIK, Dr. Schumer uses a gentle laser to create the corneal flap. This technology allows Dr. Schumer to better customize the corneal flap for each patient. As the name implies, no blades are used in this kind of laser eye surgery.
Femtosecond lasers emit optical pulses of extremely short duration, as short as one-quadrillionth of a second. These ultra-short pulses do not transfer heat or shock to the material being cut and can make surgical incisions with extreme precision.
The technology was developed in the early 1990s at the University of Michigan Engineering Center. The first commercial platform was introduced in 2002 and the original approval was for flap creation during LASIK surgery. Recent platform approvals have been expanded to include additional corneal/therapeutic procedures and cataract applications.
