Ziemer Ophthalmic Systems received CE approval for the Femto LDV Z8 femtosecond laser, according to a news release.

The low-energy femtosecond laser is approved for clear corneal and arcuate incisions, capsulotomy, lens fragmentation, and previously covered corneal and presbyopia indications, the release said.

“The monitored rollout of the device will now begin in combination with an in-depth education program for femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery,” the release said.

The Femto LDV Z8 is a mobile laser system equipped with Adaptive Pulse Management technology, which can be applied in a variety of settings. The system also incorporates optical coherence tomography.

A liquid patient interface for cataract indications supports laser transmission and minimizes surgery-related increases in IOP.

Cataract procedures performed with the Femto LDV Z2, Z4, Z6 and Z8 platforms are not approved in the United States and some other countries, the release said.
