Faster Healing than All Other Surface Ablation Procedures Alcohol-assisted PRK • Use of alcohol on the cornea potentially inducing inflammation. • Devitalized cells pushed to center of the cornea, releasing cytokines. • Pseudodendrites typically visible for one week or more and retard healing. • Painful procedure. • Average healing time: 7 days. Epithelium and Bowman’s membrane after alcohol removal1 • Some patients require 10 days or longer. Mechanical PRK with a brush • 80% of irregular edges with mechanical PRK with a brush. • Average healing time: 5 days. • Some patients require 7 days...

Epi-LASIK has changed greatly from its original form • Most surgeons now discard the epithelial sheet. • Moria Epi-KTM the most widely used epikeratome. • New surgical techniques and pain management regimens. and achieved impressive results • Consistent epithelial separation. • Preservation of corneal biomechanical integrity minimizing the risks of ectasia. • Fewer induced higher order aberrations (HoA). • Faster healing than all other surface ablation procedures. • Faster visual recovery than all other surface ablation techniques. • Very effective post-operative pain management. The Moria...

powered by Moria The optimal design for safe, reliable epithelial separation time after time. • Metal separator with proprietary edge geometry specifically for cleaving rather than cutting. • Disposable plastic head encases each separator for added safety and convenience. • Applanation plate provides yet an additional margin of safety. • Single Use suction ring option. • Large diameter suction ring for hyperopes, flat corneas, wavefront-guided ablations, and lasers requiring large ablation zones. • Ideally paired with the One Use-Plus microkeratome, which shares the same technology...
