Excimer Laser Corneal Shaping using an 193 nm Excimer Laser (ArF) provides a possibility for the fabrication of corneal transplants of various forms for various clinical applications such as (epi-)keratoplasty. Another area of application envisioned is the production of 'living contact lenses' for epikeratophakia. A device for lathing and perforating corneal donor tissue with a scanning laser beam is presented. A new ablation algorithm (Optimized Scanning Laser Ablation) was recently developed and increased the quality of lenticules and donor buttons considerably.
