Abstract:

A PREVIOUSLY DEVELOPED 193-NM EXCIMER LASER SYSTEM, THE EXCIMED UV200LA, WILL BE USED TO PERFORM PHOTOREFRACTIVE KERATECTOMY USING TWO DIFFERENT TREATMENT TECHNIQUES. THE CLINICAL RESULTS OF THE EXCIMED UV200LA WITH AN ELECTRONICALLY DRIVEN IRIS APERTURE DELIVERY SYSTEM WILL BE COMPARED TO AN EXCIMED UV200LA WITH A FIXED-BEAM DIAMETER USED IN CONJUNCTION WITH AN ABLATABLE MASK. DEVELOPMENT OF THE ABLATABLE MASK WILL BE CARRIED OUT, AND A RANGE OF OPERATING PARAMETERS FOR PERFORMING PHOTOREFRACTIVE KERATECTOMY WITH THE ABLATABLE MASK WILL BE DETERMINED IN MATERIAL MODELS, IN VITRO AND IN VIVO. ANALYSIS OF THE DATA COLLECTED IN RABBITS AND MONKEYS WILL DETERMINE IF THE ABLATABLE MASK TECHNIQUE WILL BE USED IN FURTHER HUMAN CLINICAL TRIALS OF PHOTOREFRACTIVE KERATECTOMY.
