SURGICAL PROCEDURE AND POSTOPERATIVE VISUAL OUTCOMES OF SMALL-INCISION LENTICULE EXTRACTION

Since the introduction of the Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) in 1990, the surgical technique for correcting refractive errors like myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism by means of laser has advanced considerably. Concretely the development of Laser Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) has contributed specially in the innovations developed in corneal refractive surgery. Currently, […]

APPLICATIONS OF FEMTOSECOND LASER-ASSISTED CATARACT SURGERY

The crystalline lens is a structure located inside of the eyeball that in the youth is transparent, but nevertheless with the age is opacified. Although age is considered to be one of the principal reasons of opacification of the crystalline lens, it has been proved that factors like exposure to ultraviolet radiation among others influence in his […]

CLINICAL APPLICATIONS OF PHAKIC INTRAOCULAR LENSES

Corneal refractive surgery is one of the most performed procedures worldwide to correct refractive errors such as myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. Advances developed in Laser Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) surgery allow greater precision in creating the corneal flap by means of femtosecond laser and lower incidence of complications, among many other advantages. The advent […]

INTRASTROMAL CORNEAL RINGS IN PATIENTS WITH KERATOCONUS

In patients with corneal ecstasies as keratoconus, one of the alternatives to regularize the corneal surface is the implantation of intrastromal corneal rings. As it is known keratoconus produce an increase of the corneal curvature and a decrease in corneal thickness, among other alterations. According to keratoconus evolution grade, intraestromal corneal ring features will be […]

SURGICAL PROCEDURES AND CLINICAL DEVICES IN KERATOPLASTY

Previously was necessary to transplant the entire cornea when keratoplasty was performed, however currently is possible to transplant only the area of the affected cornea. Indeed, the advent of femtosecond laser has allowed that keratoplasty be more precise and safety intervention. Specifically, femtosecond laser in keratoplasty surgery is used to create the donor corneal button, as for eliminate the cornea where will be grafted the corneal button ...

COLLAGEN CROSSLINKING FOR TREATMENT OF PROGRESSIVE KERATOCONUS

Keratoconus is a corneal disease characterized by progressive thinning corneal stroma, which produces increased corneal power and corneal aberrations. Different treatments have been developed to reduce the progression of keratoconus and delay keratoplasty, as intrastromal corneal rings or crosslinking among others. Advances in crosslinking procedure, as likewise in clinical devices facilitate the monitoring of the pathology, and require be updated in clinical practice ...
