Microkeratome Technology
The microkeratome is the instrument that creates the corneal flap during LASIK surgery. When LASIK was first FDA approved, the microkeratomes used were complicated machines that contributed to higher rates of LASIK flap complications. With extensive research and development, microkeratome technology has come along way. Today’s modern microkeratomes are designed with precision to significantly reduce flap complication risks.
