Streamlight Lasik

Mechanical debridement of the epithelium leads to potential BM injury , Upregulation of keratocytes and irregular OZ exposure.
This usually leads to stormy postoperative course in the first few days , irregular re-epithelialization , considerable pain..
This picture has been always attributed to the removal of the epithelium and the time it takes to regenerate.

Whats the Alternative?

  • Remove the Epithelium with the laser
  • No mechanical trauma
  • No Alcohol
  • Rounded disc removed , hence a decreasing rounded defect allowing observation of any irregularity
  • Faster healing time
  • Shorter “dangerous” period
  • Less PAIN……
