ABSTRACT
The article relates the author's experience with using the latest generation femtosecond laser on a number of laser-assisted in situ keratomeliusis (LASIK) eyes. According to the author, speed and precision are the key advantages of the iFS laser from Abbott Medical Optics. In addition, he notes that surgeons will not face much learning curve with the iFS. He also emphasizes the excellent flap quality of the latest generation femtosecond technology.
