The using of KrCl (223 nm) excimer laser in ophthalmic devices for Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) and phototherapeutic Keratectomy (PTK) is offered. The structure and functions of a new surgical UV ophthalmic laser systems Medilex using ArF (193 nm) or KrCl (223 nm) excimer laser for corneal surgery are presented. The systems Medilex with the new optical delivery system is used for photoablative reprofiling of the cornea to correct refraction errors (myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism) and to treat a corneal pathologies. The use of the 223 nanometer laser is proposed to have advantages over the 193 nanometer laser. The results of application of the ophthalmic excimer laser systems Medilex for treatment of myopia are presented.
