According to Zeimer, the new ablation laser is different from excimer lasers as it operates at wavelengths which are less absorbed by water molecules. This allows the ablation process to be significantly less affected by temperature or humidity in the OR leading to more consistent surgical results
“With the release of the AQUARIUZ solid-state laser, we can soon offer the complete refractive surgical suite together with our FEMTO LDV Z-models and the GALILEI devices.” said Frank Ziemer, CEO and President of Ziemer Ophthalmic Systems.
The AQUARIUZ is CE marked but not yet FDA cleared for use in the United States. For some countries, availability may be restricted due to regulatory requirements.
