Guidance Issuing Office
Center for Devices and Radiological Health

FDA has developed this guidance document to assist industry in preparing premarket notification submissions for keratomes and replacement keratome blades. The device is intended to shave tissue from sections of the cornea for a lamellar (partial thickness) transplant. Keratomes, originally used during cornea transplant surgery, are now widely used during the laser refractive surgical procedure known as laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK).
