FemtoLASIK, the all-laser procedure
With the most advanced technology of the femtosecond laser, air bubbles are produced under the corneal surface for safe and gentle separation of the flap (step1).
Then the excimer laser shapes the cornea (step2) to give back sharp vision to your eyes.
Further advantages of Femto LASIK:
• Painless operation in minutes
• Suitable even for high myopia
• Thin corneas can be treated
• Greater quality of vision
• More safety and convenience
• No stress for eye and patient
• No eyedressing after treatment
• Full vision generally achieved next day
To provide freedom from glasses, Dr. G. Fiedler was the first surgeon who performed excimer laser treatment in Munich as early as 1993.
As a renowned member of the many international scientific societies he shares his experience about LASIK in many lectures, at congresses around the world and in publications.
With both German national and US federal medical credentials Dr. Fiedler also teaches LASIK, approved by the Association of German Ophthalmologists (BVA).
National German Television showed him several times operating with the ultimate Femtosecond Laser: Watch him performing LASIK surgery in TV at www.augenlaser-muenchen.de or ask for a DVD per mail.
The overwhelming interest in the Arab World in laser surgery that he experienced again at the Red Sea Congress in Sharm el Sheik made him further expand his contacts and cooperation with local Arab Eye specialists.
Several years of experience in Arab Countries working for WHO and RED CROSS / RED CRESCENT made him familiar with your specific medical needs.
Happy patient with Dr. Fiedler and his staff
