A Comparison of Fellow Eyes Undergoing LASIK or PRK With a Wavefront-guided Excimer Laser Versus a Wavefront-optimized Excimer Laser

2010-07-15 17:00:00 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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.

Description

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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
