Example text

The FEMTEC laser has a curved patient interface that does not applanate the cornea. 9 Docking of IntraLase cone with suction ring positioned on the eye. ) Complete applanation of the cornea must be achieved with the Intralase, or an incomplete flap or side cut may occur. A small meniscus of nonapplanated cornea outside the flap is desirable. After successful applanation, the outline of the flap will appear on the viewing monitor of the laser. Slight decentration can be corrected using the arrow keys on the laser keyboard; however, the diameter of the flap will be decreased as the degree of adjustment increases.

Included in the discussion of each device the reader will find pearls for its operation; the advantages and the disadvantages of the representative models are also presented. The femtosecond laser will also be covered in a separate section. The material presented is designed as an adjunct toâ not as a substitute forâ a certification course or a user's manual. For a broader perspective readers can review the entire section or simply target the material relevant to their available equipment. Two-Piece Microkeratome Hansatome This section will introduce the reader to the Hansatome, one of the more popular mechanical microkeratomes.

Case duration is also increased significantly. This is particularly true if the excimer procedure does not immediately follow the IntraLase procedure. With experience the duration of the average case decreases. The incidences of free cap, inadequately small flap, marked decentration, and buttonhole are much reduced with the IntraLase. Microstriae still occur and are relatively easy to treat provided there is early intervention. There have been scattered case reports of delayed photosensitivity weeks after an uneventful treatment.
