Femtosecond laser superior for ring segment channels

November 1, 2003

Virginia Beach, VA-Femtosecond laser (IntraLase FS) creation of channels for implantation of intrastromal corneal ring segments (Intacs micro-thin prescription inserts, Addition Technology) represents an improved technique relative to mechanical dissection because it is easier and associated with better visual outcomes as well as fewer explantations and exchanges, according to the results of a comparative study.
