for Dr. Lewis’s WOC presentation
SBK using a Femtosecond Laser (EVI)
EVI or Enhanced Video Imaging brings out the corneal stromal texture using a specialized digital video filter.
Epi-LASIK using the Moria Microkeratome (EVI)
EVI shows the smooth texture of Bowman’s membrane. Compare this with SBK above.
Texture of Bowman’s Membrane in Moria Epi-LASIK
A fiber optic light source emphasis the smooth, mirror like surface of Bowman’s immediately after the microkeratome pass.
Moria’s Epi-LASIK Microkeratome Pass
Although we discard the epithelial flap, it is harvested undamaged in this technique.
Amoil’s Brush Exposes Bowman’s Membrane in an RK Patient
The texture of Bowman’s membrane appears less smooth in this case than it appears in the Epi-LASIK surgery above.
Standard LASIK cases from 1999 to 2002 (EVI)
EVI demonstrates a very roughened corneal stromal surface in these older surgical procedures.
