Surface ablation

Low myopia correction: SMILE versus surface ablationOngoing case series is revealing small-incision lenticule extraction to be better than surface ablation (SA) for all myopic laser corrections. However, SA still is useful in patients with thin corneas and therapeutic indications, according to Prof. Suphi Taneri.
Surface ablation again turns to laserWhen asking the question, “What’s the ideal surface ablation: Laser, scraping, or alcohol?” it is not surprising that the response from Marguerite B. McDonald, MD, favors an approach known as Epi-Bowman Keratectomy (EBK).
