A lenticule of intrastromal corneal tissue was cut together with 2 small incisions of 3.0 mm using a low-energy femtosecond laser system, FEMTO LDV Z8; 1 incision led to the posterior plane and 1 to the anterior, allowing dissection of the lenticule. When needed, recentering of the treatment area was possible without repeating the docking stage. Five eyes were operated, and a complete dissection and removal of the lenticule was achieved in all cases without any intraoperative complications. In addition, at postoperative day 1, all patients had a clear cornea. In conclusion, guided lenticule extraction using a low-energy femtosecond laser was a promising and easy procedure.
