    What is the difference between femtosecond laser surgery and SBK?

    SBK (Sub Bowman Keratomileusis) is a modification of the LASIK method during which a very thin cornea flap is created. Sometimes, SBK is also referred to as Thin Flap LASIK. LASIK (and also SBK) is laser surgery during which the protective cornea lamella is created with mechanical keratome with a vibrating blade and the healing excimer laser works on the basis of dioptric expression of the disorder. SBK and LASIK are methods suitable for patients demanding a reasonable compromise between the price and quality. Compared to PRK, Lasik and SBK provide stable results and fast healing after the surgery. The methods have been proven over ten years of medical practice. They are less suitable for patients with an extremely thin cornea, more serious disorders and increased demands on twilight and night vision. During conventional LASIK and SBK-type surgery, the protective layer in the form of cornea lamella is surgically created with mechanical microkeratome with a sharp vibrating blade. Although the surgery is extremely safe and reliable, the idea of a vibrating blade working on their eye is not acceptable for a number of patients. To these patients we recommend NeoLASIK and NeoLASIK HD surgery during which the protective layer in the form of cornea lamella is created with femtosecond laser, without using any sharp instruments. These types of surgery are chosen by 96% of our patients. Especially by those who prefer the highest quality, comfort and safety Zeiss VisuMax femtosecond laser can create the protective layer of the corneal tissue in a safe, reliable, quick and painless manner. This underpins the excellent results of NeoLASIK and NeoLASIK HD methods. Everything is painless and without using any sharp instruments.
