      Excimer lasers are the cool laser. It works by removing the desired portion of the corneal tissue, without heating up or harming the surrounding tissue. Quite amazingly, excimer lasers are extremely precise that it’s able to remove % of a human hair width at a time. Excimer assisted Lasik surgery is not a gimmick, but a real technology. Even after a corneal transplant, you will probably need to wear glasses or contact lenses to see clearly. Conductive Keratoplasty (CK) Conductive keratoplasty is a refractive surgery approved by the FDA for treating farsightedness in patients over age Using low-level radiofrequency energy (not a laser), this procedure reshapes the cornea.

    Book A Consultation For Our Hi-definition LASIK and PRK LASIK Surgeries. With this state-of-the-art technology, our hi-definition LASIK and PRK LASIK surgeries in Concord, Castro Valley, and San Leandro are safer and more efficient, with greater predictability and reliability – especially when compared to conventional, old-fashioned LASIK and other refractive procedures. Oster began using the excimer laser to treat corneal disorders in , has taught several courses on laser vision correction, and has lectured at national and international meetings. Dr. Oster performs LASIK at TLC Laser Eye Centers Denver, and also practices as a cornea specialist accepting referrals for corneal transplantation and cataract.

    Now, we use an ultrafast laser to create a thinner, more precise flap using a series of microscopic bubbles in the corneal tissue. The second step is the corneal flap is gently folded back and our Visx excimer laser is painlessly used to reshape the underlying cornea to eliminate the refractive errors. Refractive eye surgery is non-essential eye surgery used to improve the refractive state of the eye and decrease or eliminate dependency on glasses or contact can include various methods of surgical remodeling of the cornea (keratomileusis), lens implantation or lens most common methods today use excimer lasers to reshape the curvature of the cornea.

The development of the Excimer laser is the key element that has made laser eye surgery possible. Created by IBM, Excimer lasers (the name is derived from the terms excited and dimers) use reactive gases, such as chlorine and fluorine, mixed with inert gases such as argon, krypton or electrically stimulated, a pseudo molecule (dimer) is produced that, when lased, produces light in.

LASIK is an acronym for Laser Assisted In-situ Keratomileusis and has been deemed by the American Society of Cataract & Refractive Surgery and the Eye Surgery Educational Council to be a safe and effective treatment for a host of common vision disorders.

Such disorders include myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) and astigmatism. Discussion The results of this study of 24 keratoconic eyes treated by excimer surgery allows us to consider the many questions that have been raised about excimer laser surgery of keratoconus (S.

In addition, Dr. Hersh has designed a number of refractive surgery instruments in current use, most recently the Hersh Intralase LASIK Flap Spatula.Laser In-Situ Keratomileusis (). Contact Lens sized flap is made into the Corneal Epithelium (via femtosecond/cutting laser or microtome); Cornea epithelial flap is folded over, allowing laser access to the underlying Corneal Stroma; Corneal Stroma is removed via pulsatile (excimer) laser; Corneal flap is folded back into place and spontaneously re-adheres.The excimer laser is used to correct refractive errors of the eye and its task is the adjustment of the corneal surface so that the surgery results in a sharper and clearer vision.

The Lasek technology has been used for more than 20 years, and it brings many benefits.
