Title: Corneal & refractive surgery.
Authors: Yamamoto, G K
Issue Date: Sep 1997
Abstract: Excimer lasers and high technology instrumentation have ushered in a new era of vision improvement surgery in Hawaii, replacing the more traditional forms of refractive surgery: cataract surgery, corneal transplant surgery, and radial keratotomy. Corneal surgery has been enhanced by new techniques of microsurgery and a more effective tissue procurement system for donor corneal tissue. Several laser centers provide the latest in FDA-approved excimer laser procedures including PRK and PTK. Mild to moderate myopia and astigmatism may now be corrected. Off-label use of LASIK, too, may soon be realized.
