Wavefront-guided LASIK effective for higher-order aberrations

August 1, 2002

Philadelphia-Improved visual outcomes were seen with wavefront-guided laser ablations because both lower- and higher-order aberrations were reduced. The residual higher-order aberrations were lower than those found in conventionally treated eyes, according to Stephen Brint, MD, who reported results from the CustomCornea study group here at the annual meeting of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery.
