Following FemtoLASIK to treat low to moderate myopia, 98% of eyes treated with WaveLight/Contoura, 90% with WaveLight/WFO, and 85% with VISX achieved UCVA of 20/20 or better, and 100%, 94%, and 97%, respectively, achieved 20/25 or better. The refractive accuracy in achieving these excellent visual outcomes is 99%, 100%, and 93% within ± 0.50 D of the desired target. UCVA of 20/40 or better (legal driving vision) was achieved in 100%, 100%, and 98% of eyes. An exceptional visual result of 20/16 or better was achieved in 89%, 52%, and 65% of eyes, and 45%, 17%, and 10% achieved UCVA of 20/12 or better.
