Title
(EN) DEVICE AND METHOD FOR RESHAPING THE CORNEA
(FR) DISPOSITIF ET METHODE DESTINES A REFORMER LA CORNEE
Abstract
(EN)
A method of correcting the refractive error in the cornea of an eye. The cornea is heated, to loosen the molecules therein, thereby softening the cornea into a gelatinous material. The gelatinous material is then reshaped, so that it substantially conforms to a predetermined pattern, and cooled to maintain it in the predetermined pattern. This results in modification of the cornea without a gray to white response in the cornea and corneal tissue shrinkage.
(FR)
L'invention concerne une méthode destinée à corriger l'erreur réfractive dans la cornée d'un oeil. La cornée est chauffée en vue d'une désolidarisation des molécules y contenues, ce qui permet de ramollir la cornée et d'obtenir une matière gélatineuse. Cette matière gélatineuse est ensuite reformée de manière à prendre sensiblement une forme prédéterminée, puis refroidie de façon à conserver cette forme prédéterminée. Il en résulte une modification de la cornée sans réponse de gris à blanc dans la cornée et sans contraction du tissu cornéen.
