Age, refractive index of corneal stroma help improve LASIK predicted outcomes

Factoring patient age and refractive index of the corneal stroma into the treatment profile improved the predictability of LASIK outcomes, according to a study.The prospective study included 133 eyes, of which 107 were myopic and 26 were hyperopic. Mean patient age was 33.4 years. Mean refractive index was 1.368, and attempted spherical correction was –2.43 D.
