Precision key to effectiveness of custom ablation

November 15, 2002

Nice, France-Custom ablation is a useful technique for eyes that have not been treated with a refractive procedure. But this approach can also be used to improve the quality of vision in previously treated eyes that exhibit symptoms such as glare, halos, night vision difficulties, or monocular diplopia, according to Omar J. Hakim, MD, who spoke during the XX Congress of the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons (ESCRS).
