Laser provides good myopic LASIK results in European trials

August 1, 2002

Philadelphia-The Allegretto Wave excimer laser (WaveLight Laser Technologie AG, Erlangen, Germany) appears to be safe and effective when used for LASIK to correct myopia and myopic astigmatism. Ablations performed using this laser also seem to produce very little high-order aberration and coma after treatment, even when treatment is not guided by wavefront technology.
