Treatment of hyperopia: a new ablation profile to reduce corneal eccentricity.

Abstract

PURPOSE Hyperopic treatment normally increases corneal eccentricity (the measure of corneal asphericity). Information derived from treating corneal white scars occurring after hyperopic ablations suggests that reducing corneal eccentricity through central corneal flattening followed by smoothing eliminates scarring and prevents its recurrence. METHODS We… (More)
