Objective
To discuss complete armamentarium of femtosecond technology assisted refractive surgery in video based interactive module

Summary of Content/Synopsis of the course
From its first clinical use in 2001 for LASIK flap creation, femtosecond lasers (FS) have steadily made a place as the dominant flap-making technology worldwide. Newer applications are being evaluated and are increasing in their frequency of use.The purpose of the instruction course is to discuss current applications and advantages of femtosecond laser technology over traditional manual techniques and related unique complications in corneal refractive surgical procedures, including LASIK flap creation, intracorneal ring segment implantation, astigmatic keratotomy, presbyopic treatments, and intrastromal lenticule procedures.
