Wavefront-guided PRK vs Wavefront-optimized PRK
The purpose of the study is to compare the results of PRKK surgery when using wavefront-guided excimer laser treatment compared to wavefront optimized excimer laser treatment in patients with nearsightedness with and without astigmatism
Stanford is currently not accepting patients for this trial.
- Procedure: Wavefront-guided PRK
- Procedure: Wavefront-optimized PRK
- Subjects age 21 and older with healthy eyes.
- Nearsightedness between -0.25 diopters and -8.00 diopters with or without astigmatism
of up to 5.00 diopters.
- Subjects under the age of 21.
- Excessively thin corneas.
- Topographic evidence of keratoconus.
- Ectactic eye disorders.

- Patients must have similar levels of nearsightedness in each eye. They can not be more
than 2.5 diopter of difference between eyes.
- Patients must have similar levels of astigmatism in each eye. They can not have more
than 1.5 diopter of difference between eyes.
