MIK: Manual Intralamellar Keratopigmentation
Surgical instruments specially designed for KTP are used: Vissum Eye MP System.
- One incision is done using a calibrated diamond blade. From such radial incision, the cornea is dissected intralamellarly and circularly at the same depth with an helicoidal corneal dissector, without touching the pupil area.
- The adequate colour, previously prepared for the purpose is injected with a 27-gauge flat cannula into the dissected corneal areas.
