|Description|| The Centurion SES ("SES") is a surgical/ mechanical device designed to delaminate or separate the epithelial layer of the cornea above Bowman's layer. The Centurion SES eliminates the need for alcohol currently used during LASEK to delaminate the epithelium. By eliminating the need for alcohol and providing a 'minimal-touch' surgical approach, the SES is designed to reduce trauma to the epithelial layer and avoid flap-related complications. This proprietary technology has been licensed to Norwood EyeCare by the world-renowned surgeon, Ioannis Pallikaris MD, Ph.D. of Crete, Greece.|
For the past several years, ophthalmologists have searched to find a solution to address complications associated with laser refractive surgery such as dry eye, pain, damage to the epithelial layer, improper microkeratome cuts or improper healing of the corneal flap. This search has continued through the evolution of several laser refractive procedures including PRK, LASIK and LASEK.
The Epi-LASIK surface ablation technique differs from other microkeratome type surgeries in that it accurately and reproducibly delaminates or detaches the epithelial layer above the Bowman's layer. This is significant in that by leaving Bowman's intact, the detached epithelial layer can be repositioned with minimal trauma and high potential for reattachment.
