Next Generation Technology

Bladeless LASIK in Chicago and Lombard - Foulkes VisionDr. Foulkes helped pioneer the first-generation of the Ziemer LDV in 2007. Since then, Foulkes Vision upgraded to the Z6 laser in 2012.

This update to the Z-LASIK method enables LASIK surgeon Dr. Foulkes to complete a three-dimensional corneal correction. This surgical technology provides the eye doctor with power to customize each corneal flap to accommodate a particular patient’s visual needs.

Here are eight ways in which the Z6 technology is superior to other femtosecond lasers:

  • Short pulse width
  • Large corneal flaps
  • Uniform, reproducible flap thickness
  • Capable of thin flaps (SBK)
  • Full computer-controlled suction
  • Truly safe ultra-thin corneal resections
  • Lowest pulse energy (nJ)
  • Highest pulse repetition rate (MHz)

Superior Surgical Technology

Bladeless Z-LASIK - Ziemer femtosecond technologySurgeons prefer this laser’s distinctive hand-held delivery system along with the ease and functionality of the machine’s multi-directional, articulated arm. This revolutionary design provides several clinical advantages, the least of which is patient and physician comfort during the vision correction surgical procedure.

Patients are treated comfortably in a surgical bed, and do not need to be relocated between flap creation and ablation procedures.
