Gain a new level of confidence after FemtoLASIK

A great option for those who hate missing out!

Whether or not you are suitable for laser eye surgery depends on many different factors. Only a thorough preliminary examination and conversation with your eye surgeon can clarify this.

Femtolasik or Femto-LASIK is the most commonly performed laser eye treatment of the cornea and replaces LASIK (Laser-assisted in situ kerato milieusis) as the standard treatment. The big difference is that with LASIK a blade is used, while with Femtolasik the entire procedure is performed with lasers.

After the corneal flap is created with the femtosecond laser, this flap is set aside. This makes the deeper layers of the cornea visible. With a 2nd laser, an excimer laser, this deep layer is then flattened in the case of nearsightedness or steepened in the case of farsightedness. At the end, the flap is placed on the cornea again, after which it spontaneously reattaches.

  • 2e generatie ooglaserbehandeling, na Lasek, maar voor het ontstaan van SMILE
  • Very fast recovery overall
  • Most frequently performed surgery
  • Is the standard treatment for more than 20 years
  • Available worldwide and performed by many eye surgeons
  • Femto-LASIK: the entire procedure is only performed with lasers, no blade is used
  • The extremely fast and precise femtosecond laser allows the surgeon to create a very accurate flap, without a blade. Afterwards, the final treatment under this flap is performed by the excimer laser
  • Our treatments are painless . A lasek procedure can sometimes cause some irritation, but this disappears after a few days.

Complications after Femto-LASIK are extremely rare, but can never be completely ruled out. As with any treatment, side effects are always possible. This is discussed and examined in detail during the thorough preliminary investigation.

  • FemtoLASIK is an excellent, reliable surgery that has been performed millions of times globally.
  • However, for those who aren’t suitable, alternative laser vision correction procedures include:
    • SMILE
    • ICL
    • Presbyond/ Presbymax/Laser blended vision
    • Lens replacement (refractive lens exchange, RLE, PreLEX).
  • If you wear soft contact lenses, you should remove them for a week before the procedure. Hard contact lenses are best left off for three weeks. Do not use make-up, lotions or perfume during the treatment day. You are therefore not allowed to drive the car yourself
  • The treatment takes barely twenty minutes for both eyes
  • You will go home after the procedure. At night you will wear protective glasses for a few nights . You should use eye drops for several weeks to prevent infections and to keep the eye well moistened. We would like to see you for a check-up the day after and a month later.
The results of Femtolasik are great, with the vast majority of patients seeing 20/20 or better - without glasses and contacts.

Your laser eye surgeon in Antwerp, Dr. Frank Goes Jr

He’ll be your personal guide on your journey to visual freedom

With over 20 years of experience, I enjoy the privilege of helping patients of all ages reclaim clear vision or preserve it for as long as possible.

I am and have been a board member for different national and international professional societies on eye surgery, and I have the privilege to give several national and international courses on cataract and refractive surgery.

Good vision correction and high-precision cataract surgery depends on the expertise of the provider. The provider must also have access to precise tools. The best eye surgeons know how to make treatment safe, comfortable and positive for the patient. They know how to minimise the risk of complications and maximise successful outcomes.

I try to be one of those surgeons
