September 1, 2004

San Diego-Early experience in a study that compared standard LASIK with LADARVision CustomCornea (Alcon Laboratories) to treat myopia with minimal astigmatism showed superior visual results with the customized LASIK and PRK procedures. The customized procedure induced about 0.25 D of against-the-rule astigmatism that resolved by 3 months.
