Relex Flex

Relex Flex (Refractive Lens Extraction / Femtosecond lenticule Extraction) treats Myopia with or without astigmatism using only the femtosecond laser Visumax.

First the laser Femto-second Visumax cuts a thin flap of the corneal tissue. (As for femto-lasik treatment).

Then the laser Visumax performs the cutting of a lenticule biconvex corresponding to the visual defect. This lenticule is removed manually by the surgeon afterwards. (See illustration below).
