The Femto LDV Z models, which include the Z2, Z4, and Z6, perform various cornea and presbyopia treatments, according to company literature. The Z models operate at pulse frequencies in the megahertz range and with very low pulse energy, allowing the threshold for tissue disruption to be reached at short interaction time.
