The FDA has cleared the iFS Advanced Femtosecond Laser (AMO), which is now available for order.

The fifth generation laser, which can cut a corneal flap within 10 seconds, includes IntraLase-Enabled Keratoplasty (IEK), and has a higher repetition rate and tighter spot separation than earlier models. It has a unique inverted bevel-in-side cut angle to improve the biomechanical stability of postoperative corneas, and can create an elliptical flap to increase the number of surgical options.

The iFS laser - part of AMO's proprietary iLASIK technology suite - has an ergonomic design, new contemporary user interface and high-resolution digital video microscope, all designed to increase surgeon comfort and ease of operating, enhancing the outcome for the patient.
