The study compares the precision and accuracy of two laser refractive techniques, PRK and LASIK, for correction of nearsightedness between -6 and -8 diopters.
Laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) and photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) are currently the 2 main refractive surgeries to correct myopia which are being performed worldwide, with more pa...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Epi-Lasik in U.S. Army personnel who have naturally occurring myopia with or without astigmatism. The data from this co...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the MEL 80 Excimer Laser is effective in the treatment of moderate to high myopia (nearsightedness), when used as part of the Laser In Sit...
The study tried to find the relation between ablation depth and degree of dryness after LASIK treatment of myopic patients
To compare contrast sensitivity among participants undergoing wavefront-guided or wavefront-optimized photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) or LASIK for the treatment of myopia or myopic astigmatism 12 mo...
To evaluate the safety and efficacy of flap-lift LASIK performed 10 or more years after the original LASIK procedure.
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...
With the increasing prevalence in myopia there is growing interest in active myopia prevention. This study aims to increase our understanding of parental attitudes to myopia development and control, a...
To report the incidence of postoperative ectasia after laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK).
Excessive axial myopia associated with complications (especially posterior staphyloma and CHOROIDAL NEOVASCULARIZATION) that can lead to BLINDNESS.
Plastic surgery of the SCLERA. This procedure is used frequently to prevent blindness and poor vision in patients, especially children, with MYOPIA.
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.
Detachment of the corpus vitreum (VITREOUS BODY) from its normal attachments, especially the retina, due to shrinkage from degenerative or inflammatory conditions, trauma, myopia, or senility.
A refractive error in which rays of light entering the EYE parallel to the optic axis are brought to a focus in front of the RETINA when accommodation (ACCOMMODATION, OCULAR) is relaxed. This results from an overly curved CORNEA or from the eyeball being too long from front to back. It is also called nearsightedness.
Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine that is devoted to the study and treatment of eye diseases. As well as mild visual defects correctable by lenses, ophthalmology is concerned with glaucoma, uveitis and other serious conditions affecting the eye, ...
