The animations were created for the Carl Zeiss AG zeiss.de and their clients in the year 2011.
The goal was to make it easier for the patient to understand what will happen during the operation and to improve the information process.

For those who don`t understand german speaker:

"The term LASIK is short for „Laser in Situ Keratomileusis“. The LASIK procedure was introduced in 1989 and is throughout the world currently the most widely used procedure for eye laser treatment.

This procedure involves preparing a thin layer, called a flap, which is made on the cornea with the help of a device called a microkeratome. Following that, the flap will be retreated and the underlying cornea layer will be stripped with a computer-controlled excimer laser. The whole surgery takes about 3 to 5 minutes. LASIK can be applied to correct short-sightedness of up to – 10 diopters, irregular curvature of the cornea of up to 6 diopters and far-sightedness of up to +4 diopters."
