What are the latest results with Wavefront Guided LASIK?
CustomCornea wavefront-guided LASIK using the Alcon LADARVision4000 laser and the LADARWave system is now approved for use. The latest FDA data shows that wavefront-guided treatments using this system provide superior visual results compared to traditional LASIK treatments. In the latest study, 141 eyes were treated and postoperatively, 63% saw 20/16 or better without glasses. 88% saw 20/20 or better. This data is with a single surgery, without any retreatments (enhancements). Looking at eyes with no astigmatism (45 eyes), results are even better, with 71% seeing 20/16 or better and 93% seeing 20/20 or better. Accuracy of corrections was also extremely impressive, with 90% of eyes ending up within 0.5 diopter of the intended correction. Regarding night vision, only 1.4% of patients reported significant worsening of night vision; nearly ten times more patients (11.3%) reported significant improvement of their night vision after treatment!
