After several years of development, Ziemer has received CE clearance for its new lenticule application called CLEAR (Corneal Lenticule Extraction for Advanced Refractive Correction). The new proprietary application is intended for the treatment of myopia and astigmatism. CLEAR can be purchased and upgraded with a new software package for the FEMTO LDV Z8 Platform.
The CE clearance also authorizes surgeons to use the FEMTO LDV Z8 for children’s cataract surgery.
“With our new developments, we are keen to offer doctors and patients the benefit of a large variety of treatments. So we are delighted to be reaching a new milestone in this regard with our solution-oriented innovations,” Frank Ziemer, CEO and President of Ziemer Ophthalmic Systems, said in a company news release.
Applications available with the FEMTO LDV Z8 Laser Platform include: LASIK, keratoplasty procedures such as DALK, tunnels for rings, pockets for inlays, and cataract treatments.
