Probe placement is controlled by direct observation using either a goniolens or an endoscope.Four to ten openings are created into Schlemm's canal.The longer the diameter of ablation, the deeper the ablation becomes.The ablation profile and volume are chosen either to eliminate low-order aberrations only (‘classic ablation’) or low- and high-order aberrations (customized ablation).Relative systemic contraindications include collagen vascular diseases, pregnancy, hormone replacement therapy, and immunocompromise e.g. PRKPRK involves removal of the corneal epithelium followed by photoablation of Bowman's layer and the anterior stroma.After treatment a bandage contact lens (BCL) is inserted.Mild to severe foreign body (FB) sensation is normal for 3–4 days post operatively until the corneal surface has re-epithelialised. There is minimal damage to the epithelium so post operative FB sensation is mild and short lived.PRK is safe and effective for correcting low myopic refractive errors. Haze is only seen at the periphery of the flap where Bowman's layer has been cut.

From: trabeculostomy, first used clinically in 1998, treats the pathology responsible for most open-angle glaucoma by decreasing the outflow obstruction at the juxtacanalicular trabecular meshwork and the inner wall of Schlemm's canal.Following refractive surgery advanced biometric calculations are required.System and Turbo Elite Laser Catheter, manufactured by Spectranetics (Colorado Springs, CO).The CVX-300 uses exact energy control with shallow tissue penetration to decrease the thermal injury to the native artery.The energy is released in short pulses rather than in continuous fashion, as was used in previous devices.

refractive surgery procedures are commonly used to correct myopia, hypermetropia and astigmatism. Excimer (excited dimer) laser photoablation can be used to remove corneal tissue with submicron accuracy without thermal build up or adjacent tissue damage.
