DNA testing for LASIK Safety
Avellino Labs has performed more than 505,000 refractive surgery safety DNA tests and identified more than 550 patients with inherited corneal dystrophies, protecting them from accelerated vision loss. Twice as prevalent as Keratoconus, it has become evident that testing for Corneal Dystrophies is becoming the standard of care in the US and other countries.
Testing for 5 corneal dystrophy gene mutations identifies LASIK candidates at risk of post-surgery complications so that doctors can offer non-laser alternatives.

LASIK, an elective procedure, is one of the safest medical procedures available and outcomes almost always exceed patient expectations. Advances in genetic diagnostics are changing what is possible in terms of preventive and predictive medicine, enabling eye care professionals to screen otherwise good LASIK and refractive surgery candidates for previously undetectable conditions, and in the process genetic science is closing the gap between excellent and perfect.
A Simple Test – The DNA safety test for LASIK involves a simple cheek swab that takes under 30 seconds to complete. Sample collection is quick, simple, and painless.
Speedy Turnaround – Avellino provides next-day test results via a secure physician web portal. All tests are performed in our CLIA certified lab resulting in affordable, accurate and rapid testing for your patients.

The CORONET Recipient Vacuum Trephine is ergonomically designed and the length has been calculated to give easier access to the most recessed eyes.The trephine is supplied in a comprehensive range of blade diameters and utilises the unique CORONET blade technology to create an ultra-sharp cutting edge of reliable and repeatable quality.
Pach 6 ,Pach-pen
Only the AccuPach VI has Digital Signal Analysis, which offers outstanding accuracy and repeatability.
The built in IOP conversion makes calculating IOP quick and easy. The voice output allows the operator to focus completely on the patient as the AccuPach VI verifies the measurements out loud.
Accutome’s PachPen is the perfect combination of accuracy, portability and comfort. The superior ergonomic design fits comfortably in any hand, which is a major improvement from other handheld models.The PachPen is also equipped with Accutome’s Digital Signal Analysis which will eliminate non perpendicular measurements on the cornea.
Sonogage CORNEO-GAGE™ PLUS pachometers are acknowledged to be the easiest to use, most accurate and measurement-reproducible pachometers available.
These benefits are due to the exclusive use of 50 MHz transducers and smallest tip footprint available coupled with advanced electronics and 1000 measurement echo average for every displayed reading. Thus corneal thickness measurements can be made for many applications including glaucoma patients, hypertension suspects and refractive surgery candidates.
In addition Sonogage pachometers can be used intra-operatively to monitor flap thicknesses in LASIK and to measure epithelium thickness for refractive surgery regression and for the fitting of CRT/ORTHO-K lenses
The most comprehensive and versatile corneal remodeling system in existence on the world market
Keraring, an intrastromal ring segment, is a precision implantable device designed specifically for treating corneal ectasias and reducing refraction errors associated with keratoconus
The SCHWIND AMARIS 1050RS is the product of continuous development work and is the most powerful excimer laser in the AMARIS product family.
The innovative laser system delivers an unsurpassed repetition rate of 1050 Hz – currently the highest of all excimer lasers on the market – and consequently an extremely short ablation time of just 1.3 seconds per dioptre.
That means even greater safety and comfort for the patient.
The risk of the cornea drying out is minimised, and the length of time the patient has to fixate on the
green light is reduced. It is a performance leap that
brings maximum safety and enhanced patient comfort.
A device for cutting the cornea - You can rent or buy
Corneal preservation solution
Corneal Chamber containing EUSOL-C
The VEGA is a system of 5 diodes that distributes UV light at a wavelength of no more than 370nm, equipped with a diaphragm, luminous fixation point, collimation system and telecamera with optical head
The Pericardium patch graft is comprised of low profile collagen with a nominal thickness of 400 microns.
It has a multi-directional matrix for superior surgical handling and suture utility.
The low profile nature of the pericardium prevents graft bulkiness over the implant.
Single layer tissue thickness can be maintained at the limbus to prevent dellen with a double-thickness layer posterior to the limbus.
amniotic membrane technology – developed to further optimize and simplify amniotic membrane transplation (AMT) for eye surgery.
The EndoGlide™ Ultrathin, has been specifically designed to provide best clinical results during DSAEK surgery, by enabling maximum control and protection of the donor graft throughout the procedure. The patent protected design allows the donor graft to be loaded into the delivery cartridge utilising a unique ‘double coil’ principal, minimising endothelial touch and protecting the donor graft during insertion to the recipient
