PURPOSE To report the effectiveness, patient satisfaction, and complication rate with a zonal refractive intraocular lens (IOL) in a high volume of patients. SETTING Private clinic, London, United Kingdom. DESIGN Case series. METHODS Retrospective data of patients with binocular Lentis Mplus IOLs were analyzed. The main outcome measures were(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the refractive outcomes and rotational stability after implantation of a multifocal toric intraocular lens (IOL) with a surface-embedded near section. SETTING Private center, London, United Kingdom. DESIGN Case series. METHODS This study evaluated eyes with more than 1.50 diopters (D) of preexisting corneal astigmatism. After(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate safety, efficacy, predictability, stability, complications, and patient satisfaction after implantation of Artisan toric phakic intraocular lenses (TPIOLs) for the correction of myopia or hyperopia with astigmatism. DESIGN Prospective, nonrandomized, comparative (self-controlled) multicenter trial. PARTICIPANTS Seventy eyes of 53(More)
PURPOSE To assess vision-related, quality-of-life outcomes 5 years after laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) and determine factors predictive of patient satisfaction. SETTING Optical Express, Glasgow, Scotland. DESIGN Retrospective case series. METHODS Data from patients who had attended a clinical examination 5 years after LASIK were analyzed. All(More)
BACKGROUND Progressive hyperopia is a common complication following radial keratotomy. METHODS Ten eyes of ten consecutive patients with hyperopia after radial keratotomy between +1.75 and +4.00 diopters (D) were treated with the hyperopia module of the Nidek Model EC-5000 excimer laser. The mean preoperative uncorrected visual acuity was 0.38 (20/60+).(More)
PURPOSE To assess efficacy, safety, predictability, and patient satisfaction after refractive lens exchange with a new refractive rotational asymmetric multifocal intraocular lens. METHODS One hundred six eyes of 53 patients after bilateral refractive lens exchange with the SBL-3 lens (Lenstec, Inc., Christ Church, Barbados) implantation were evaluated.(More)
PURPOSE To provide an initial retrospective evaluation of early postoperative outcomes after wavefront-guided myopic LASIK using a new-generation Hartmann-Shack wavefront sensor. METHODS A noncomparative, retrospective study of 243 eyes of 126 patients that underwent primary wavefront-guided LASIK, using wavefront data obtained with a new Hartmann-Shack(More)
PURPOSE To assess the safety, efficacy, predictability, and refractive outcome of implanting Ophtec Artisan phakic intraocular lenses (pIOLs) in eyes with keratoconus. METHODS In this retrospective study, 18 eyes of 11 patients diagnosed with keratoconus who underwent toric or myopic pIOL implantation were followed for 1 year postoperatively. Mean patient(More)
PURPOSE To report the outcomes of the correction of mixed astigmatism with non-penetrating femtosecond laser intrastromal astigmatic keratotomy in patients with previous refractive surgery. METHODS One hundred twelve eyes that had low mixed astigmatism after excimer laser surgery, refractive lens exchange, or phakic intraocular lens implantation underwent(More)
PURPOSE To determine the safety and efficacy of wavefront-guided LASIK for the correction of low to moderate myopia, as performed by surgeons employed by Optical Express, a large corporate provider. METHODS Data were extracted from the Optical Express central database on 22,900 patients (42,143 eyes) who underwent primary LASIK to treat low to moderate(More)
