(Online article) -… nothing less than a dream of mankind, the longing for the free, unobstructed view, had fulfilled. With the use of a laser had succeeded Dr. Marguerite McDonald, the refraction of the eye through the removal of corneal tissue to change that moved the point of intersection of the beams directly on the retina. What is given in the Universitatsallee by anatomical deviations not by nature, could be established now retrospectively thanks to high-tech medicine. The excimer laser required was first developed in the seventies of the last century by Russian scientists for industrial use.
That you can use it to edit even biological tissue, researchers at IBM had found out later; but they were still industrially oriented in. Until Marguerite McDonald should eventually succeed, the excimer laser a cold laser, which dealt with that, nor damages surrounding tissue by heat to insert into the eye medicine. Based on the scientific work of the researcher Stephen L. Torkel and Charles Munnerlyn, joined Dr. McDonald especially the continuous improvement of operational practice. Often, was and is involved in the technical development, to the design of operation chairs, bringing the head of the patient to the proper position for a laser treatment.
The procedure at the first only short sichtigkeiten, dealt with the correction of hyperopia was carried out for the first time in 1993 in turn by Dr. McDonald, was so revolutionary that it exceeded not only the imagination of most patients. Many eye doctors needed time to adapt to a treatment, for the fractions of seconds enough to achieve maximum visual performance with tiniest tissue corrections. It was initially simply weird to many. And even today the cherished desire is connected with the fear of the procedure after the free often. The empathy of doctors must always take into account, especially since the number of patients Mercurial grows from year to year.
