One-Year Outcomes from a Prospective, Randomized, Eye-to-Eye Comparison of Wavefront-Guided and Wavefront-Optimized LASIK in Myopes – Corrected Proof

Objective: To compare wavefront (WF)-guided and WF-optimized LASIK in myopes.Design: Prospective, randomized, eye-to-eye study.Participants: A total of 72 eyes of 36 participants with myopia with or without astigmatism.Methods: Participants were randomized to receive WF-guided or WF-optimized LASIK with the WaveLight Allegretto Eye-Q 400-Hz excimer laser platform (Alcon, Inc., Hüenberg, Switzerland). LASIK flaps were created using the 150-kHz IntraLase iFS (Abbott Medical Optics, Santa Ana, CA). Evaluations included measurement of uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA), corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA), <5% and <25% contrast sensitivity, and WF aberrometry. Patients also completed a validated questionnaire detailing symptoms on a quantitative scale.Main Outcome (Read more...)
