The Lamellar Corneal Surgery Module (LCS Module), with a hand-piece that can cut depths of 250–450 µm, has been released by Ziemer Group.

The LCS is an accessory to Ziemer's Femto LDV femtosecond surgical laser, and features a built-in camera and a graphical user interface. The Femto LDV uses high-speed and low-pulse energy and uses optics that are able to create deep stromal incisions. The addition of the LCS Module will enable highly accurate ring segment insertion, through the precisely controlled tunnel incisions and pockets the LDV can create.

Ziemer showcased the new technology on November 7 in Atlanta (Georgia, US) at the American Academy of Ophthalmology meeting.
