SCHWIND TransPRK – Touch-free eye laser treatment

No-touch eye laser treatment in a single step

TransPRK (transepithelial photorefractive keratectomy) by SCHWIND is a touch-free laser eye correction method used with SCHWIND AMARIS laser systems. Unlike with conventional methods like LASEK, Epi-LASIK and PRK, with TransPRK the eye is not touched with any instrument. Instead, the SCHWIND AMARIS laser removes the epithelium, without suction, flap, or blade, and without the use of alcohol. This touch-free procedure is non-invasive, safe, and gentle to the eye.

Touchless: no suction, no flap, no incision

Safe: high corneal stability

Fast: treatment in one step

Short healing process with fast regeneration of the epithelium

Very good clinical results

Economical: easy to use, time-saving, low investment

Safe, gentle and precise

Treatment takes place directly on the upper surface of the cornea. There are no cut or flap complications. This non-invasive method leaves a very stable cornea and thus provides more safety for the patient.

Furthermore, the SCHWIND AMARIS laser ablates the epithelium more precisely, evenly, and easily than do manual or alcohol-assisted methods.

 

Fast

In just one step, the epithelium is removed and the refractive correction performed. This shortens the treatment time considerably, minimising the risk of corneal dehydration. Due to the smaller wound area, healing is faster than with manual methods.

 

Versatile

TransPRK is suitable for all laser candidates wishing to see clearly. It is ideal for active and athletic people, and for professions where sharp vision is needed. TransPRK is also a good treatment option for patients with thin, pathological or irregular corneas.

 

Economical

TransPRK is easy and time-saving in use. No femtosecond laser is required.
