Abstract Details


To compare visual and refractive outcomes between Topo-Guided (TG) and Wavefront Optimized (WFO) myopic LASIK procedures.


Carolina Eyecare Physicians, Mt. Pleasant, SC, USA


Retrospective chart review of patients who underwent LASIK between May 2015 and January 2016 to correct myopia with or without astigmatism. Patients that had manifest refraction available at 1 month or 3 months were included. Retreatments as well as monovision cases were excluded. Assessments include preoperative manifest refraction spherical equivalent (MRSE), best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), type of treatment (TG or WFO), postoperative MRSE, uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA) and BCVA, and gain/loss of BCVA lines. Comparison between the 2 groups were made. A P > .05 was considered statistically significant.


188 eyes were available for analysis: TG n = 63 and WFO n = 125. Mean age of the data set was 31.3 ±6.5 with no significant differences between the groups (P = .237). Preoperatively, no significant differences were found in sphere (range -8.75 to 0.00) and astigmatism (range -4.00 to 0) between the 2 groups (P > .05). One hundred percent of eyes in both groups were within 1.0D of target; 100% of eyes in TG were 20/30 or better and 20/40 or better in WFO; 45% of eyes gain 1 o2 lines of vision in TG and 2% loss 2 lines while 29% of eyes in WFO gained 1 lines and 2% loss 2 lines of BCVA.


Our results show that both treatments have successful outcomes; however, a higher percentage of eyes in the topo guided group gained more lines of vision compared to the wavefront optimized group.
