At this year's ESCRS in Paris, Moria showcased its One range of single-use, high precision, handheld surgical instruments, including the One Use-Plus SBK. This new generation of LASIK microkeratomes reportedly achieves accuracy and visual results equivalent to femtolasers at a fraction of the cost.

The One Use-Plus system is a linear, automated, microkeratome featuring a nasal hinge and two head sizes (90 and 130) for customizable flap thickness of 100 µm and 130 µm on average, respectively. In addition to this surgeons can benefit from three single use suction rings, -1, 0 and +1, to accommodate for all keratometries. The company claims the instrument can help doctors achieve predictable, thin flaps with planar profiles, resulting in outstanding visual outcomes that are equivalent or better than those achieved with a femtolaser with less discomfort to the patient.

Moria has been working with corneal surgeons in the field of DSAEK on the relatively new technique of Ultra-Thin DSAEK.
