Abstract Details


To evaluate postoperative distance best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) after LASIK treatment for myopia using the WaveLight Refractive Suite.


Prospective, post-market, and open label clinical trial at 4 sites, 2 sites each in US and Europe. 1. Durrie Vision, Overland Park KS, USA 2. Gordon-Weiss-Schanzlin Vision Institute, San Diego CA, USA 3. Wellington Eye Clinic, Dublin, Ireland 4. Sehkraft Augenzentrum Maus, Cologne, Germany


Myopic subjects 18 years of age or older underwent LASIK treatment with the WaveLight Refractive Suite. Subjects completed visits preoperatively and at 1 day, 1 month, 3 months, and 6 months postoperatively. Monocular manifest refraction and BCVA was measured with an ETDRS chart at 4 meters.


Ninety-seven subjects underwent LASIK treatment and 96 subjects were included in the full analysis set. The mean manifest refraction spherical equivalent at baseline was -3.67 D ±1.98 D. Compared to baseline, a gain of 1 or more line in distance BCVA was demonstrated in 52% of eyes at 1 month, 57% of eyes at the 3 months, and 60% of eyes at 6 months. No eyes lost two or more lines in BCVA at any postoperative visit.


The majority of the subjects’ eyes had a 1 line gain of distance BCVA at 1 month, 3 months, and 6 months postoperatively compared to baseline. The percentage of eyes with a gain of one or more line increased between consecutive postoperative visits.
