A Prospective, Randomized, Multi Center Clinical Comparison of Fellow Eyes Undergoing Lasik Using the Wavelight Allegretto Wave™ Excimer Laser in One Eye and the Amo/Visx Customvue™ or the Ladarvision 4000 Excimer Laser System in the Contralateral Eye

Summary

The purpose of this study is to compare LASIK outcomes using the WaveLight ALLEGRETTO WAVE™ wavefront guided or optimized excimer laser treatment with the AMO/VISX CustomVue™ and the LADARVision 4000 excimer laser treatment.

Standard refractive outcomes such as uncorrected and best corrected visual acuity, and intended vs. achieved postoperative refractions will be evaluated; in addition, high order optical aberrations, contrast sensitivity, and topography will be measured.

Description

The primary objective of this study is to compare WaveLight ALLEGRETTO WAVE™ wavefront guided or optimized excimer laser treatment with the AMO/VISX CustomVue™ and the LADARVision 4000 excimer laser treatment using both subjective and objective outcome measures. This comparison will be made between fellow eyes of the same patient following excimer laser ablation using the WaveLight ALLEGRETTO WAVE™ Excimer Laser System in one eye and the AMO/VISX CustomVue™ or the LADARVision 4000 excimer laser in the contralateral eye .

Chronic total coronary occlusion treated with excimer laser coronary atherectomy: a case report.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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).

A surgical procedure to correct MYOPIA by CORNEAL STROMA subtraction. It involves the use of a microkeratome to make a lamellar dissection of the CORNEA creating a flap with intact CORNEAL EPITHELIUM. After the flap is lifted, the underlying midstroma is reshaped with an EXCIMER LASER and the flap is returned to its original position.

A type of refractive surgery of the CORNEA to correct MYOPIA and ASTIGMATISM. An EXCIMER LASER is used directly on the surface of the EYE to remove some of the CORNEAL EPITHELIUM thus reshaping the anterior curvature of the cornea.

Techniques using laser energy in combination with a balloon catheter to perform angioplasty. These procedures can take several forms including: 1, laser fiber delivering the energy while the inflated balloon centers the fiber and occludes the blood flow; 2, balloon angioplasty immediately following laser angioplasty; or 3, laser energy transmitted through angioplasty balloons that contain an internal fiber.

Treatment using irradiation with LASER light of low power intensity so that the effects are not due to heat, as in LASER THERAPY. These non-thermal effects are thought to be mediated by a photochemical reaction that alters CELL MEMBRANE PERMEABILITY, leading to increased mRNA synthesis and CELL PROLIFERATION. Low-level laser therapy has been used for a wide variety of conditions, but most frequently for wound healing and pain control.
