EBK™ procedure is based on the Epi Clear™ device, a dynamic multi-blade polymer epikeratome device to carry out precise, epithelium surface removal. The dynamic epikeratome gently sweeps the epithelial surface and simultaneously collects discarded epithelial cells into the multi-blade tip for thorough removal. Because the Bowman's layer remains completely intact, healing and visual recovery time are shortened significantly.
The EBK™ procedure with the Epi Clear™ device prepares the ideal treatment bed for the excimer laser to ablate and reshape the cornea for refractive correction. The procedure takes around 8 seconds per eye.
