Removal of Corneal Scar
Phototherapeutic keratectomy (PTK) uses a laser to remove tissue from the cornea. This allows the removal of superficial corneal opacities and surface irregularities.
It can be used to remove corneal scars or opacities, or used to treat recurrent corneal erosion.
Diamond burr superficial keratectomy is an effective and safe method for removing corneal scar. It is also used for treating recurrent corneal erosions.
The procedure is fast and can be done in the clinic using topical anesthesia only.
