Xanit International Hospital has installed a new laser which is the most secure and technologically advanced refractive surgery system currently available. As well as other interventions it allows the correction of presbyopia (eye strain) and the correction of refractive defects such as myopia, astigmatism and hypermetropia.
The laser: Bausch and Lomb - Technolas Perfect Vision, is a combination of a Femtosecond laser, used to make corneal cuts in an automated manner, and an Excimer laser specifically used for refractive surgery. The aim is therefore to correct all refractive defects, these being the characteristics of the eyeball which necessitate the use of glasses.
''Another of the great advantages of this laser is that it allows the surgery performed to be adapted to each individual patient”, confirms Dr Cilveti, Head of the Ophthalmology Department at Xanit International Hospital. He adds that “this aspect is of great interest because it allows the correction of residual refraction in patients who have already had previous surgery, as well as the elimination of optical aberrations - that is to say imperfections which produce defective vision - thus producing a better quality of vision.”
"The new platform of refractive surgery available in Xanit has made new treatments possible. Being greatly superior to conventional platforms it can perform both conventional treatment such as Aspheric treatment (employed in simple cases of myopia and astigmatism) as well as Supracor treatment. Supracor treatment eliminates the need for reading glasses and has a similar effect to wearing graduated glasses but in the patient's cornea, enabling the ability to see both near and far" explains Dr Cilveti.
In addition to purely refractive treatments, the laser permits diverse corneal surgery with a significant degree of perfection, this avoids a large amount of manual intervention. As well as the siting of intrastromal rings which are used to correct corneal defects (such as keratoconus and acquired defects such as post-surgery ectasia), penetrating keratoplasty (which we usually know as corneal transplant) and superficial and deep keratoplasty can be performed. In these latter ones the Femtosecond laser allows the removal of a partial thickness layer of corneal tissue and substitute it with a similar layer from the donor. .
