Model for success
Around 1,200 AMARIS excimer lasers have been installed in 100 countries so far, according to Schwind.
“SCHWIND users have performed more than six million treatments with AMARS technology to date.
“With 3.1 million treatments (52%), LASIK performed with a femtosecond laser or a microkeratome is the most frequently chosen method by SCHWIND users since the introduction of the AMARIS,” said a Schwind spokeswoman.
Of these, 1.3 million treatments were performed as FemtoLASIK. The touchless TransPRK/SmartSurf ACE procedure is also enjoying growing demand.
