excimer laser vision correction procedures

Haze after PRK, LASIK tied to faulty epithelial regrowth
Haze after PRK, LASIK tied to faulty epithelial regrowthPoor regeneration of the epithelial basement accounts for most 'late haze' associated with PRK, LASIK, infections, or corneal transplants. Proper excimer laser maintenance may reduce irregularities.
Pulse technology boosts all-laser PRK for one-step, no-touch ablation
Pulse technology boosts all-laser PRK for one-step, no-touch ablationA transepithelial PRK (TransPRK) procedure (SmartSurface, Schwind eye-tech-solutions) provides the benefits of one-step, no-touch surface ablation plus rapid visual recovery, said Diego de Ortueta, MD.
Consider latest excimer laser techniques for presbyopiaExcimer laser ablations to the cornea (PresbyLASIK) to create a multifocal cornea may be an alternative treatment for patients with presbyopia

Kenneth Greenberg, MD, catalyst in development of excimer laser, diesThe loss of pioneering refractive-corneal surgeon Kenneth A. Greenberg, MD, left an indelible mark on many in the ophthalmic community. Dr. Greenberg passed away Jan. 31, 2016.
Trends in U.S. refractive surgery: 2015 ISRS surveyThe 2015 International Society of Refractive Surgery survey, the twentieth such survey and the seventh year published online, presents new findings about surgeons’ preferences in corneal and lens-based surgeries, premium intraocular lenses (IOLs), and femtosecond cataract surgery.
Combined refractive lenticule extraction + CXL promisingEncouraging results are being achieved with simultaneous refractive lenticule extraction and intrastromal collagen crosslinking in patients who are not candidates for excimer laser vision correction procedures.
