excimer laser refractive surgery

excimer laser refractive surgery

Use of the EXCIMER LASER to alter the curvature of the cornea so as to change the refraction of the eye and correct moderate degrees of short sight (myopia) and other refractive errors. Also known as excimer laser refractive keratectomy.

Hyperopic excimer laser refractive surgery relies on laser pulses applied in an annulus around the mid corneal periphery in order to induce central corneal steepening, increase corneal power thereby reducing hyperopia (see Figure 1).
