Title (EN) ADJUSTABLE REPROFILING OF SYNTHETIC LENTICULES
(FR) MODIFICATION AJUSTABLE DU PROFIL DE LENTICULES SYNTHETIQUES
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus and process for applying a synthetic lenticule to the cornea of a human eye is disclosed, the process also contemplating selective reprofiling of the lenticule while it is in place over the cornea. The process involves securing the lenticule (140) over the cornea (24) with an adhesive (56), thus leaving the visual axis of the eye undisturbed or with the peripheral edge (152) thereof being retained by a peripheral slit. A laser deliver system is used to reprofile the lenticule if necessary for refining the refractive power of the lenticule.
(FR) Appareil et procédé permettant d'appliquer une lenticule synthétique sur la cornée d'un ÷il humain ledit procédé concernant également la modification sélective du profil de la lenticule lorsque celle-ci se trouve déjà placée sur la cornée. Le procédé comprend la pose de la lenticule (140) sur la cornée (24) à l'aide d'un adhésif (56), ceci ne perturbant pas l'axe optique de l'÷il, ou bien à l'aide d'un bord périphérique (152) de la lenticule qui se trouve retenu par une fente située sur le pourtour. S'il est nécessaire de modifier le profil de la lenticule afin qu'elle ait un meilleur pouvoir de réfraction, on utilise pour ce faire, un système émeltant un faisceau laser.
