PURPOSE To investigate the refractive outcomes of multifocal LASIK to create a center far, peripheral near zone in presbyopes. METHODS This prospective study using LASIK with a center far, peripheral near ablation algorithm comprised 68 eyes of 34 hyperopes and 78 eyes of 39 myopes. Mean patient age was 49 +/- 5.60 years for hyperopes and 46.0 +/- 3.80 years for myopes. Mean baseline manifest refraction spherical equivalent was +1.76 +/- 0.96 diopters (D) in hyperopes and -3.06 +/- 1.73 D in… CONTINUE READING
