- Age 18 and over
- Both eyes must be healthy
- Removing soft contact lens for 14 days or a hard contact lens for 30 consecutive days prior to LASIK action
- Not being pregnant or breastfeeding.
7D Z-Lasik is the fastest LASIK technology today. This technology utilised to removing minus, plus, and astigmatism condition on our eyes with a higher accuracy and improved safety level from the previous technology.
JEC started utilise Z-Lasik from 2008. Z-Lasik is an improvement from the IntraLASIK. The technology was produced by the Ziemer Group, a Swiss based multinational company with great reputation in the Ophtalmology field
The technology already approved by the US Army, US Navy, US Air Force, Marine Corps and NASA improve eyesight.
Was first conducted in Indonesia in 2006 by the JEC. LASIK without a scalpel using Intralase Femtosecond Technology (IFS) at 150 kHz combined with the German technology machine; Allegretto Wave 400Hz EyeQ (Excimer Laser) which is the world's fastest LASIK machine in during the era. Currently the JEC had upgraded IntraLASIK technology with the latest technology.

LASIK Xtra is a procedure performed after LASIK action to bind collagen fibers in the cornea, to increase the strength of the cornea. This action is intended for patients with weak or thin cornea to reduce the risks after the LASIK procedure.
The LASIK Xtra procedure usually performed thirty seconds after the regular LASIK procedure is completed, to improve the durability of LASIK correction in patients.
The process of LASIK Xtra
- Doctors shed riboflavin (vitamin B2) on the cornea.
- The riboflavin soaked area of the cornea, then irradiated with ultraviolet light A (UVA)
- Light will bind (cross-links) the collagen fibers in the cornea, build a more powerful cornea and lock the result of LASIK action.
The LASIK Xtra procedure can also be done even if the action LASIK has been performed several years earlier. Your doctor will probably give advice this procedure if deemed necessary.
No Touch LASIK
If the patient’s eye minus condition and diagnosed with thin cornea (below 500 microns), then usually the ophthalmologist will suggest the No Touch LASIK procedure.
With the No Touch LASIK, the whole ablation process is done digitally without any equipment touching the surface of the cornea.
JEC also the pioneer in utilizing Microkeratome in Indonesia in 1997. Microkeratome is a microsurgery procedure using a very small scalpel, to make a 83-200 micrometer sized flap on the cornea. Our cornea, usually between 500-600 micrometer thick.
1 micrometer = 0.0001 centimeter
Some patients with the thin cornea condition, usually not recommended for the LASIK procedure. They usually suggested to undergo Surface Ablation to correct the refractive problem.
Advance Surface Ablation is an effective technology to correct eyesight by utilising laser. The technology will fix the minus, plus and the astigmatism with a very minimal touch to the eye’s surface. The technology also known as Photo-Refractive Keratectomy.
- Your cornea is too thin.
- Your eyes relatively dry.
- Athletes with many body contacts, like boxing, wrestling, etc
The result for Advanced Surface Ablation are as good as LASIK in the long term. But the healing process usually took longer. During the healing process, ophthalmologist usually suggesting the use of contact lenses. The lenses will be put on and put out by the doctor, so the patient doesn’t need to touch the contact lenses.
Always consult every of your condition with the ophthalmologists team at JEC for a comprehensive information about procedures that’ll fit to your condition.
Keratoconus terms taken from the Latin, kerato (cornea) and Conus (horn or cone). If the condition is already in an advanced state, the shape of the patient's eyes will look like a cone when viewed from the side. Because of the abnormalities of the shape of the eyes, the vision of course will be disrupted.
The symptoms are mostly similar to symptoms of other visual disturbances, such as blurred vision or excessive glare. Therefore, you should consult your doctor at JEC if you experience any interfere with your vision.
Keratoconus can be caused by various things, one of which is due to an enzyme imbalance that weaken the corneal tissue. Also caused by excessive direct UV exposure. Keratoconus conditions generally can be repaired, or to inhibit the process by strengthening ties through the action of collagen crosslinking.
