EPI LASIK AND CONDUCTIVE KERATOPLASTY

EPILASIK

Epi-LASIK is an abbreviation for Epithelial Laser In-Situ Keratomileusis. This procedure is an advanced type of corneal surface ablation to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Epi-Lasik procedure is performed on patients having very high refractive error with thin cornea. In Epi-Lasik method corneal flap of 60 is created instead of 130 flap in conventional Lasik procedure. This gives the eye surgeon extra 70 to perform Laser Vision Correction on patients having very high myopia. After the epithelial flap is made, it is lifted and gently folded out of the way. An excimer laser is used, as in LASIK or PRK, to sculpt the underlying corneal tissue. Then the epithelial flap is placed back on the eye with a kind of spatula. A special contact lens is placed on the eye to keep the flap in place while it re-epithelializes. The contact lens protects the surface of the eye and allows the epithelial cells to grow back properly. After Epi Lasik procedure patient may experience pain, watering and blurred vision for 2-3 days.

Tired of reading glasses? - New radio wave technology provides an alternative to LASIK.

Farsightedness is most predominant among Baby Boomers, many of whom view reading glasses as a sign of aging. Symptoms of farsightedness include: difficulty reading menus, computer screens, the alarm clock, or driving at night eye fatigue when reading in poor lighting or at the end of the day trouble changing focus from distance to near constantly repositioning reading material in an attempt to find the right focus.

Conductive Keratoplasty (CK) is the first non-laser procedure for farsightedness. CK uses the controlled release of radiofrequency (RF) energy, instead of a laser or scalpel to reshape the cornea. Because CK is performed without the cutting or removal of tissue, it meets the needs of the risk-adverse laser vision correction patient who's been waiting for an alternative to LASIK for farsightedness. For years, the farsighted patient has been left behind as vision correction procedures progressed: RK, PRK, and even LASIK initially were all treatments solely for the nearsighted. CK is one of the first laser vision correction procedures designed specifically for farsightedness.
