SBK will be next trend in laser refractive surgery

Sub-Bowman's keratomileusis could advance laser surgery beyond LASIK and PRK

By David W. Mullin
LAS VEGAS ? Sub-Bowman?s keratomileusis will become the next trend in laser refractive surgery, combining advantages of both PRK and LASIK, a surgeon speaking here predicted.

Daniel S. Durrie
In sub-Bowman?s keratomileusis, or SBK, a femtosecond laser is used to create a corneal flap just below the level of Bowman?s membrane, at a depth of 60 ?m to 70 ?m, according to Daniel S. Durrie, MD.

This is ?the optimal flap,? according to Dr. Durrie, OSN Refractive Surgery Section Editor.

At the American Academy of Ophthalmology meeting, Dr. Durrie discussed results from a prospective, randomized, contralateral eye study comparing SBK and surface ablation in 100 eyes of 50 patients.
