We have the equipment Laser Eximer that allows all current techniques Keratomileusis by Photoablation (LASIK, PRK, LASEK). 5 Units of Microkeratomes for traditional surgery and Femtosecond to perform Flap (Cutting of the anterior layers of the Cornea), procedures such as Intracorneal Rings and Laser Keratoplasties are performed
What is the Eximer Laser?
The word LASER means: Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation.
The word Excimer means: Excited dimers of inert gases.
The laser equipment is an instrument capable of producing and controlling a coherent beam of light. Laser light can be directed, focused and controlled more precisely than normal light and can be generated in very short and intense pulses. Each pulse extracts a microscopic proportion of tissue, evaporating it with very low heat release, leaving the underlying tissue without injury. The laser most frequently used in corneal surgery is the Excimer Argon fluoride laser that emits at 193 nm. Its action mechanism is photochemical.
