Ziemer Ophthalmic Systems has announced development activities to incorporate lenticule extraction capabilities for its LDV Z8 femtosecond laser system.

“From the very first days of developing the femtosecond laser the Ziemer R&D team has continuously focused on adding new surgical applications to the femtosecond portfolio,” CEO and President Frank Ziemer said. “I am very proud to announce the Ziemer team has developed a new method for corneal surgery by equipping our flagship FEMTO LDV Z8 device with the capability to also perform low energy lenticule extraction,” he said.

“Beside our strong focus on the cataract femtolaser market, we have dedicated a tremendous amount of time and effort to make significant progress in successfully implementing our low energy pulse management concept for new corneal applications,” said Mr Zeimer.
