EBK ClEAR

Bowman’s Layer Conserving Corneal Integrity for Refractive Laser Procedure

EBK™ (Epi-Bowman’s Keratectomy) is the only Bowman’s layer preservation technique, removing the epithelium layer by layer to create clear and graduated borders for enhanced healing. EBK™ is fast becoming the new standard of care in refractive laser surgery, in line with renewed interest in safer surface ablation procedures. EBK™ has the potential to reduce side effect such as the risk of haze and ectasia, HOAs and astigmatism. It is suitable also for patients with thin corneas and completely preserves corneal biomechanical integrity. By creating a smoother and superior treatment bed free of residue, EBK™ allows more precise refractive correction and reduces post-op pain and faster recovery. Clinically proven to deliver excellent results, EBK™ lowers risk of complications that contribute to visual recovery.

EBK CROSS

The New Standard of Care for Bowman’s layer conserving Corneal cross linking for treating Karatoconus

EBK™ – Cross is the only procedure that removes the epithelium layer by layer, leaving Bowman’s layer completely intact and creating clear and graduated borders that enables maximal riboflavin absorption for enhanced healing enables uniform riboflavin absorption for faster and enhanced re-epithelialization.

With EBK™ epithelium-off crosslinking, the outer portion of the cornea (epithelium) is removed to allow the application of riboflavin, a type of B vitamin, into the cornea, which then is activated with UV light. Epithelium-off corneal crosslinking allows faster penetration with liquid riboflavin and requires less riboflavin loading time. Corneal crosslinking with riboflavin and UV-A light has proven to be an ideal first-line treatment for people with eye conditions such as Keratoconus, pellucid marginal degeneration and corneal weakness (ectasia) after LASIK.

EBK™ creates the optimal conditions for successful corneal cross linking and lowers risk of haze. EBK™ completely preserves corneal bio-mechanical integrity, protecting the cornea from further damage, and creates optimal conditions for regularized and smooth corneal epithelium healing compared with other mechanical epithelium removal methods. In addition, EBK™ reduces post-op pain and lowers risk of complications.
