Subjects with myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism are being randomized to be treated in one eye with a wavefront-guided excimer laser and their fellow eye treated with a wavefront-optimized excimer laser.
Subjects with myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism are being randomized by ocular dominance to be treated with either PRK or LASIK. One eye will be treated with a wavefront-guided excimer laser and the fellow eye will be treated with a wavefront optimized excimer laser.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Uncontrolled, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Hyperopia (farsightedness) has been reported to be associated with reduced visual perceptual and reading abilities. However, there is controversy regarding whether or not to prescribe for ...
The Presbyopia Algorithm subject to this study has been specifically developed to prospectively generate a treatment file for the Technolas 217z100 laser that will provide Presbyopia corre...
The objective of the study is to compare clinical outcomes from LASIK and SBK using FDA-approved laser technology on the same patient
A study to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of wavefront laser refractive surgery treatments for hyperopia and astigmatism.
The study tried to find the relation between ablation depth and degree of dryness after LASIK treatment of myopic patients
Hyperopia is a common refractive error, apparent in 25% of Europeans. Treatments include spectacles, contact lenses, laser interventions and surgery including implantable contact lenses and lens extra...
To create a formula to predict refractive correction of autologous lenticule implantation for correction of hyperopia (with myopia in one eye and hyperopia in the contralateral eye).
To evaluate refractive, binocular vision and ocular alignment outcomes of photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) for the treatment of hyperopia in esotropic patients.
Although cataract surgery is a well-established and standardised procedure, it can be demanding and associated with higher complication rates in high hyperopia. We present clinical data for highly hyp...
To evaluate the predictability, efficacy and safety of Femtosecond-laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) procedure for mixed astigmatism.
A refractive error in which rays of light entering the eye parallel to the optic axis are brought to a focus behind the retina, as a result of the eyeball being too short from front to back. It is also called farsightedness because the near point is more distant than it is in emmetropia with an equal amplitude of accommodation. (Dorland, 27th ed)
Surgical procedures employed to correct REFRACTIVE ERRORS such as MYOPIA; HYPEROPIA; or ASTIGMATISM. These may involve altering the curvature of the CORNEA; removal or replacement of the CRYSTALLINE LENS; or modification of the SCLERA to change the axial length of the eye.
