PURPOSE To evaluate outcomes of laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) guided by wavefront alone versus wavefront plus topographic data. SETTING NewVision Clinics, Cheltenham, Australia. METHODS Twenty-one eyes (14 patients) were distributed into 2 groups in a prospective double-masked study. One group was treated by wavefront parameters alone (WF, n = 11), and the other, by wavefront combined with topography values (WF&VP, n = 10) using vector planning. All treatments were performed using… CONTINUE READING
