This study compared the clinical outcomes between fellow eyes randomized to either IntraLase femtosecond laser-created flaps or Hansatome mechanical keratome-created flaps during wavefront-guided laser in situ keratomileusis.

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 objective of the study is to compare clinical outcomes from LASIK and SBK using FDA-approved laser technology on the same patient
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...
Small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE), a variant of refractive lenticule extraction technology is becoming increasingly popular, as a flapless and minimally invasive form of laser vision correct...
To test the hypothesis that genes known to cause clinical syndromes featuring myopia also harbor polymorphisms contributing to nonsyndromic refractive errors.
To assess prevalence and associated factors of myopia and high myopia in schoolchildren in Greater Beijing.
To evaluate the incidence and progression of myopia and factors associated with progression of myopia in school going children in Delhi.
The increased prevalence of myopia in the United States and other regions of the world, and the sight-threatening problems associated with higher levels of myopia have led to great interest in researc...
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.
