      Microkeratome and its necessity in Ophthalmology

      Modern ophthalmology cannot function without the use of special ophthalmology devicesand instruments. Laser equipment deserves special attention, as it has no alternatives on the market. It is actively used for the treatment of the most difficult eye diseases.

      Peculiarities of construction and operation principle

      Microkeratome is a laser device, which the ophthalmologists use to perform eye surgeries. It would be hard to imagine a high-quality corneal flap cut and its ablation without a laser. It helps to make sure that the surgery is painless and to accelerate the visual recovery.

      The first laser devices appeared almost 70 years. Since the 50s, this instrument has been improved to perform corneal surgeries. Its main advantage is that it is the only device able to perform such a minute work as cornea section. A microkeratome can provide section thickness of only 100-160 microns. As a result, we get an ideally shaped corneal flap, which defines the success of the ophthalmic treatment overall.

      The main parts of the device are:

      1. An electric engine. It ensures the highly accurate result of the surgery.
      2. Removable heads or a fixed board. They help to vary the deepness of the sections.
      3. An adapter or a frame, on which the head is installed.
      4. Removable blades. They have to be made of high-carbon steel.

      By the way, the removable blades can be of three types:

      • “PLANO”: with their help ophthalmologists can cut a corneal flap of a medium size (120-130 microns);
      • “MINUS”: the blades of this type help to cut a flap of 150 to 160 microns;
      • “PLUS”: this model of blades is perfectly suitable to cut a flap of 90 to 110 microns.

      Automated microkeratomes

      Modern devices function using their own software. Computerization allows the device to analyze its condition and record the cut. With the help of such machines, ophthalmologists fully control the surgery down to the smallest details.

      Automated microkeratomes are equipped with monitors, on which the movements of the blades and the graphic lines of the cut are reflected. Every stage of the surgery is saved in the device’s memory.

      Choice peculiarities

      Certainly, in order to equip a modern ophthalmic consulting-room, it is advisable to use automated models of microkeratomes. Overall, such equipment boasts:

      • uniformity of pressure applied toward the blades;
      • autonomy of power source;
      • formation of cornea flap of preselected form and size;
      • full process monitoring;
      • minimization of possibility of making mistakes during surgeries;
      • acceleration of tissue healing.

      We recommend paying attention to the following functional features when buying the machine:

      • safety of shutdown;
      • availability of an integrated closed unit, that provides an even and smooth corneal flap;
      • absence of gears in the drive, which excludes the possibility of jamming tissues, eyelids or eyelashes.

      Where to buy a microkeratome at a good price

      BiMedis portal offers a wide range of models of new and used equipment for sale, acceptable cost, convenient search system, intuitive interface. The best offers from buyers and sellers from all over the world are collected here.
