Schwind eye-tech-solutions announced that it has received CE Mark approval for the Schwind ATOS femtosecond laser. This enables refractive surgeons to offer their patients SmartSight, the latest generation of lenticular extraction developed by Schwind, as a treatment option.

The refractive correction, which is performed entirely with Schwind ATOS, features intelligent eye tracking with pupil recognition and cyclotorsion compensation, and provides precise centering of the patient’s eye along the visual axis. This ensures maximum safety and predictable treatment outcomes, according to Schwind.

SmartSight is suitable for the treatment of myopia and astigmatism up to 5 diopters. In addition, Schwind ATOS offers high-precision flaps for FemtoLASIK.

“Schwind is continuously working on the goal of providing the eye surgeons and their patients with state-of-the-art, particularly safe and high-precision treatment options based on our latest technologies. With the CE approval for our femtosecond laser, we have reached another milestone,” Managing Director Rolf Schwind said in a company news release.

Schwind says the new combination SmartSquare, consisting of the ATOS femtosecond laser and the Amaris excimer laser, covers the most up-to-date all-laser procedures in refractive surgery. Schwind ATOS provides SmartSight lenticule extraction as well as the flap cut for FemtoLASIK. Schwind Amaris can be used for intrastromal LASIK treatment and the touch-free TransPRK/SmartSurfACE surface treatment.
