LASIK & PRK Distance-Only for Hyperopia

LASIK and PRK Distance-Only for Hyperopia (N = 18)


ᵃPercentages are cumulative
ᵇResults reflect both 20/15 and 20/16

Following FemtoLASIK in hyperopic eyes, where a precise refractive outcome is known to be more difficult to achieve, 83% of eyes achieved UCVA of 20/20 or better, and 89% achieved 20/25 or better. UCVA of 20/40 or better (legal driving vision) was achieved in 89% of all eyes and an exceptional visual result of 20/16 or better was achieved in 44% of eyes. While hyperopic outcomes typically lag those of myopic treatments, it is notable that the hyperopic outcomes were obtained in a very small number of eyes at a very early endpoint (1 week).
