The Hansatome™ microkeratome is chosen by LASIK professionals because of its ability to consistently create uniform corneal flaps.
The Hansatome microkeratome is an automated, precise tool which effectively minimizes any wrinkling of the flap by lid movements. During the LASIK procedure, Hansatome’s gentle suction ring creates suction gradually, minimizing discomfort to the patient. Once the perfect flap is created, the cornea is ready to be treated by the laser.
The Bausch & Lomb Hansatome™ Zero Compression microkeratome allows the ability to create larger, thinner flaps- saving corneal tissue, creating less swelling and smoother flaps for quicker visual rehabilitation. The Zero Compression upgrade has been a significant step forward in preventing corneal abrasions (scratches on the surface of flap). In the past, the abrasion rate was high as 25%. With the Zero compression head it now less than 2%.
