Correction of Presbyopia with Kera No-touch technique

Refractive regression : major challenge after refractive surgeryWhy?Inconsistensy of wound healing after refractive surgery Refractive regression process predominate in regions of greater tissue removal (William J Dupps Jr, etc. Experimental eye research 2006) Disruption of epithelium over central cornea in PRK amplifies the wound healing response and accounts for higher rates of regression and haze (R.R Mohan, etc. Exp. Eye 2003)

Concept :Refractive regression : major challenge after refractive surgeryEnhanced early wound healing improves final visual outcome by inhibition of regression?

Preservation of central corneal epithelium in corneal ablation surgery lead to shortening of early wound healing time decrease of refractive regression

No-touch surgery in presbyopia ?Object: emmetropia c mild hyperopia * Dual flying spothomogenous energy delivery

* Smooth ablation c no ridgeeffective corneal ablation

* Small beam size :0.44mm & Random projection delicate ablation & more accurate treatmentsInventor : George huang Ph.D. Idea from Jae Chan Kim M.D.Woo chan Park M.D., Byung moo Min M.D.

: Aspherical curvature Epithelial migration

Central epithelium ; more faster than Peripheral epithelium

Bidirectional wound healing
