Femtosecond (FS) Laser is an infrared laser with a wavelength of 1053nm. FS laser like Nd: YAG laser works by producing photo disruption or photoionization of the optically transparent tissue such as the cornea. FS laser has a wide range of applications in corneal refractive surgery. This includes LASIK flap creation, astigmatic keratotomy (AK), channel creation for implantation of intrastromal corneal ring segments (ICRS), presbyopia correction, femtosecond lenticule extraction (FLEx), small-incision lenticule extraction (SMILE), and intrastromal presbyopia correction (INTRACOR). Besides FS lasers are also being used in laser-assisted anterior and posterior lamellar keratoplasty, cutting of donor buttons in endothelial keratoplasty, customized trephination in penetrating keratoplasty, wound construction, capsulorrhexis in cataract surgery, and nuclear fragmentation in cataract surgery.
