To compare postoperative evolution of visual acuity, flap thickness, and stromal optical density during the first 3 months after femtosecond (FS) laser in situ keratomileusis surgery for correction of myopia using the iFS 150-kHz FS laser and LenSx FS laser platforms.
This article was published in the following journal.
To compare the effect of 3 common suturing techniques on eyes that received femtosecond laser-enabled penetrating keratoplasty (FLEK) with a zig-zag configuration at the Gavin Herbert Eye Institute, U...
To evaluate the predictability, efficacy and safety of Femtosecond-laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) procedure for mixed astigmatism.
Optometric or visual acuity assessment is an essential part of ophthalmologic examination. Visual acuity measurement serves as a tool for screening of ophthalmic disorders, as well as diagnosis and mo...
To compare Q-adjusted femtosecond-assisted laser in situ keratomileusis (FS-LASIK) and small-incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) in terms of safety, efficacy, and predictability, as well as in terms...
This article reviews the basic physiology of visual acuity and the principles for its clinical measurement. It describes visual acuity and its limits as a function of the human eye. Referring to the n...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the thickness accuracy of Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) flaps created with the LenSx® Laser.
Small-incision lenticule extraction (SMILE), the most recently developed refractive surgical technique, is being performed in a growing number of cases. This intrastromal keratomileusis us...
The purpose of this study is to carry out an international multicenter trial to get more convincing and valuable results of the SMILE surgery and compare the outcomes between the SMILE sur...
The purpose of this study is to compare 70 and 110 degree side-cut angles on the same patient undergoing Femtosecond Laser-assisted in Situ Keratomileusis (FS-LASIK).
To evaluate the short-term changes in ocular surface measures and tear inflammatory mediators after lenticule extraction (FLEx), laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) and femtosecond laser-...
Clarity or sharpness of OCULAR VISION or the ability of the eye to see fine details. Visual acuity depends on the functions of RETINA, neuronal transmission, and the interpretative ability of the brain. Normal visual acuity is expressed as 20/20 indicating that one can see at 20 feet what should normally be seen at that distance. Visual acuity can also be influenced by brightness, color, and contrast.
Repetitive visual hallucinations experienced mostly by elderly with diminished visual acuity or visual field loss, with awareness of the fictional nature of their hallucinations. It is not associated with delusions and other sensory hallucinations.
A technique utilizing a laser coupled to a catheter which is used in the dilatation of occluded blood vessels. This includes laser thermal angioplasty where the laser energy heats up a metal tip, and direct laser angioplasty where the laser energy directly ablates the occlusion. One form of the latter approach uses an EXCIMER LASER which creates microscopically precise cuts without thermal injury. When laser angioplasty is performed in combination with balloon angioplasty it is called laser-assisted balloon angioplasty (ANGIOPLASTY, BALLOON, LASER-ASSISTED).
Visual impairments limiting one or more of the basic functions of the eye: visual acuity, dark adaptation, color vision, or peripheral vision. These may result from EYE DISEASES; OPTIC NERVE DISEASES; VISUAL PATHWAY diseases; OCCIPITAL LOBE diseases; OCULAR MOTILITY DISORDERS; and other conditions. Visual disability refers to inability of the individual to perform specific visual tasks, such as reading, writing, orientation, or traveling unaided. (From Newell, Ophthalmology: Principles and Concepts, 7th ed, p132)
The functional superiority and preferential use of one eye over the other. The term is usually applied to superiority in sighting (VISUAL PERCEPTION) or motor task but not difference in VISUAL ACUITY or dysfunction of one of the eyes. Ocular dominance can be modified by visual input and NEUROTROPHIC FACTORS.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
