Abstract

The wavefront guided laser assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) technique is discussed. In the technique aberration patterns are measured pre-operatively and a customized ablation pattern is generated. The monochromatic aberrations of the eyes are corrected, and a diffraction limited performance resulting in an acuity better than 20/10 is achieved. A summary of the clinical trials for the products offered by the three companies that have received an approval for the technology is also presented.
