TEMLA - Trans-Epithelial Minimal Laser Ablation
TEMLA is a less invasive, low risk laser vision correction technique for all patients suitable for laser vision correction, TEMLA achieves effective vision outcomes with a simple one-step, gentle, no cut treatment.
What does TEMLA do?
This LASER eye surgery procedure uses a solid-state flying spot refractive laser to gently remove the surface layers, then re-shape, the cornea. There is no need for other appliances, suction devices, or separate cutting lasers to create a cut and flap into the cornea. The latest software algorithm drives the tracking refractive laser through the whole process.
By avoiding a cut into the eye and creating a flap or tunnel, this increases the safety of the procedure, and significantly reduces long-term risks. No blades, no flap cutter and no suction means a gentle safe approach that has the same effective outcome as any other refractive surgery. Long term problems from too deep a cut, or flap issues are completely avoided.
Who is suitable for TEMLA?
TEMLA may be reliably used for myopia (short sight) up to around 7.00 dioptres, astigmatism up to about 3 dioptres, and those with mild hypermetropia (up to 2 dioptres of long-sightedness). Larger eye corrections may be better treated with lens surgery. By not having to create a flap we are able to treat thinner corneas; which means more people may be suitable for laser eye surgery.
What is involved?
Because this is an all laser eye surgery, it is only an office procedure; there is no need to go to the operating theatre to cut a flap. It simply involves lying on a bunk, looking at the light and it's done in a few minutes. Afterwards a bandage contact lens is placed whilst it heals, and this is removed four or five days later.
Are there any issues?
As with all laser eye surgery vision correction, some have dry eyes following TEMLA treatment, but the problem tends to be limited and short term only. For larger corrections "haze" leading to regression is a possibility, but it is uncommon with the Pulzar Z1 Refractive Laser we use.
At The New Vision Centre, we operate at the forefront of vision correction surgery in Australia and offer the most advanced refractive laser technology, in addition to a full range of other refractive surgery procedures.
