Transepithelium (TransPRK)

This new technology is used to correct vision errors such as myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. The SCHWIND AMARIS laser system provides a sophisticated approach to carry out no-touch, all-laser surface ablations in a single step. Precise ablation with the laser With the TransPRK (transepithelial PRK), the epithelium is ablated by SCHWIND AMARIS laser systems. This approach avoids the eye coming in contact with any instrument. TransPRK is also an advanced surface laser treatment because the epithelium is removed more precisely, uniformly and easily than with either manual or alcohol-assisted debridement. Exactly calculated epithelial thickness profile TransPRK treats refractive errors by superimposing an aspheric ablation profile with a defined epithelial thickness profile based on literature values and mean epithelial profiles of large based populations.

  • Shortens treatment time
  • Minimises risk of corneal dehydration
  • Speeds up the healing process
