Caption: Reportage on refractive eye surgery at the Adolphe de Rothschild Ophthalmology Foundation in Paris, France. Eye surgery using a femtosecond laser and excimer laser. The femtosecond laser slices the cornea to create a corneal cap (purple) then the surgeon lifts the flap to treat the eye with the excimer laser. The cornean flap is then put back in place without stitches. This technique is used to treat myopia, presbyopia, astigmatism and farsightedness. The patient is seen on the operating table with an eye speculum.
