For example, one patient with Reis Buckler Dystrophy had had a penetrating graft in their right eye over 20 years ago and deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty in the left eye five years ago, with further phototherapeutic keratectomy for recurrence of corneal erosions, as well as LASIK to reduce astigmatism.
They cover the fundamentals, including preoperative evaluation, photorefractive and phototherapeutic keratectomy, LASIK, epi-LASIK, and femtosecond laser surgery; new technologies of Presby LASIK and collagen crosslinking; complications, including the management of diffuse lamellar keratitis, epithelial ingrowth, ectasia, and trauma; lenticular surgery, refractive lensectomy with accommodating and multifocal intraocular lenses, phakic intraocular lenses, and high hyperopia; and recent advances, such as corneal inlays for hyperopia, intracorneal rings for keratoconus and post-refractive surgery ectasia, and collagen crosslinking combined with surgeries like corneal rings and surface ablation.
Topics also include management of complications, including administering Mitomycin C, and using phototherapeutic keratectomy.
Procedures to be performed on the excimer laser include: phototherapeutic keratectomy (PTK), which repairs anterior scarring and irregularities of the cornea; and photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), which corrects nearsightedness.
In early October, VISX received FDA approval of its laser to perform phototherapeutic keratectomy (PTK) for the treatment of conditions such as corneal scars.
