Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR SURGICALLY PROFILING THE CORNEA USING VACUUM
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL DE PROFILAGE CHIRURGICAL DE LA CORNEE AU MOYEN DU VIDE
Abstract:
(EN) Refractive error of the cornea is corrected by a scraping procedure of rotating or oscillating a sharpened knife edge blade that is tangential to and against a top of the cornea at its center axis, and micro-axially advanced until the refractive error has been corrected.
(FR) Cette invention permet de corriger les erreurs de réfraction de la cornée grâce à une technique de raclage qui consiste à faire tourner ou osciller une lame affilée, qu'on place, en position tangentielle, contre un sommet de la cornée, au niveau de son axe central, et qu'on fait avancer par mouvement micro-axial jusqu'à ce que l'erreur de réfraction soit corrigée.
