Techniques improve monovision for patients with presbyopiaRefractive surgeons are likely to enjoy success with monovision for presbyopia if they aim for a maximum of 1.50 D of residual myopia in the non-dominant eye, exclude patients with pre-existing strabismus, and monitor for signs of strabismus.
LASIK, PRK enhancements yield similar safety, efficacy, predictabilityWavefront-guided LASIK and wavefront-guided PRK following previous keratorefractive surgery demonstrate similar safety, efficacy, and predictability and result in comparable wavefront outcomes.
WFG diagnostic capabilities take entire optical system into accountAdvancements in wavefront-guided technology include improved resolution that provides not only better spot quality but also the ability to scan highly aberrated eyes that often did not produce treatable images using earlier technology, according to Edward E. Manche, MD.
How WFG ablations compareIn a comparison of two wavefront-guided excimer lasers, one platform provides better clinical results on some measures but cannot image certain eyes. The other system can image nearly all eyes, but has slightly less robust clinical results.
