A large percentage of LASIK procedures are now performed using femtosecond laser technology for flap creation, and two newer femtosecond lasers have recently entered the U.S. market. With so much interest in the technology, Ocular Surgery News spoke to experts familiar with each laser to learn their similarities and differences.

Differences among the lasers include their firing speeds and the characteristics of the bubble layer formed by the intrastromal laser bursts, experts said.

IntraLase is the most established femtosecond laser manufacturer in the American market. According to the company, a quarter of all LASIK procedures in the United States are now performed using the IntraLase laser. The Femtec laser from 20/10 Perfect Vision received 510(k) approval from the Food and Drug Administration for use as a laser microkeratome in 2004, and the DaVinci laser from Ziemer Ophthalmics received FDA approval this March.

Now U.S. surgeons have three femtosecond laser devices from which to choose for LASIK flap creation.
