Transepithelial PRK

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.
Transepithelial surface ablationPRK has been an established method for laser vision correction for nearly 30 years, however, its popularity has reduced somewhat due to the advent of LASIK. With a recent renewed interest in surface ablation techniques some modifications have been made to alleviate disadvantages of the procedure. In this article, the authors highlight their clinical experience of TESA in myopic eyes with or without astigmatism.
Transepithelial PRK safe, effective at one yearAccording to recent study results, transepithelial photorefractive keratectomy is a better alternative procedure than other refractive methods when treating myopia that involves epithelium mechanical manipulation.
