The present invention is an algorithm that provides better predictability of postoperative refractive error following customized LASIK treatment for myopia.
Applications: The Strong Vision Method provides a superior treatment outcome following customized LASIK surgery by further compensating the effect of higher order aberrations on postoperative eyes. The use of this method will allow more patients to obtain an uncorrected visual acuity of 20/20, or better.
Advantages: The existing Zyoptix algorithm provides reasonably good postoperative refractive outcome, but the incidence of postoperative refractive errors is disconcerting. This technology is a refinement of the Zyoptix treatment algorithm that compensates for the effect of high order aberrations (third order and higher). This new algorithm decreases the range of postoperative refractive errors and provides better treatment outcomes for patients with severe eye abnormalities.
