A Modified Small-Incision Lenticule Intrastromal Keratoplasty (sLIKE) for the Correction of High Hyperopia: A Description of a New Surgical Technique and Comparison to Lenticule Intrastromal Keratoplasty (LIKE).

Med Hypothesis Discov Innov Ophthalmol 2018 ;7(2):48-56

HDR Research Center, Hoopes Vision, 11820 S. State Street Suite #200, Draper, UT 84020, United States.

Patients with high hyperopia are generally confined to either spectacle wear or contact lenses as a primary means of refractive correction. For this patient population, the surgical corrective methods, such as hyperopic laser assisted in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK) and photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) are imperfect options due to induction of higher-order aberrations, optical regression, and loss of best corrected distance visual acuity. Recently, there has been growing interest in lenticule implantation underneath a flap via lenticule intrastromal keratoplasty (LIKE) for high hyperopia correction (+3 diopters to +10 diopters).

Clin Ophthalmol 2018 1;12:1021-1029. Epub 2018 Jun 1.

Motwani Lasik Institute, San Diego, CA, USA.

Purpose: This pilot study was conducted to test the hypothesis that WaveLight Contoura and wavefront-optimized (WFO) hyperopic treatment can be used together for hyperopia/hyperopic astigmatism to create more uniform corneas.

Materials And Methods: A retrospective analysis was conducted in 35 consecutive hyperopic/hyperopic astigmatism eyes of 22 patients treated via LASIK on the Wavelight EX500. Higher order aberrations and astigmatism were removed using Contoura with the Layer Yolked Reduction of Astigmatism (LYRA) Protocol, and hyperopia was treated with WFO correction. Read More

Comparing wavefront-optimized, wavefront-guided and topography-guided laser vision correction: clinical outcomes using an objective decision tree.

Curr Opin Ophthalmol 2018 Jul;29(4):277-285

Department of Ophthalmology, University of North Carolina, The Laser Center-Greensboro, Greensboro, North Carolina, USA.

Purpose Of Review: This review is intended to update and educate the reader on the currently available options for laser vision correction, more specifically, laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK). In addition, some related clinical outcomes data from over 1000 cases performed over a 1-year are presented to highlight some differences between the various treatment profiles currently available including the rapidity of visual recovery. The cases in question were performed on the basis of a decision tree to segregate patients on the basis of anatomical, topographic and aberrometry findings; the decision tree was formulated based on the data available in some of the reviewed articles.

Mechanisms of Optical Regression Following Corneal Laser Refractive Surgery: Epithelial and Stromal Responses.

Med Hypothesis Discov Innov Ophthalmol 2018 ;7(1):1-9

HDR Research Center, Hoopes Vision, 11820 S. State Street Suite #200, Draper, UT 84020, United States.

Laser vision correction is a safe and effective method of reducing spectacle dependence. Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK), Laser In Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK), and Small-Incision Lenticule Extraction (SMILE) can accurately correct myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. Although these procedures are nearing optimization in terms of their ability to produce a desired refractive target, the long term cellular responses of the cornea to these procedures can cause patients to regress from the their ideal postoperative refraction.

Refractive Eye Surgery: Helping Patients Make Informed Decisions About LASIK.

Am Fam Physician 2017 May;95(10):637-644

Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, Rochester, MN, USA.

A variety of refractive surgery techniques, which reshape the corneal stroma using laser energy, have been marketed as simple and safe alternatives to glasses or contact lenses. Laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is the most common of these procedures. Although there are few high-quality prospective studies of long-term outcomes, complications, or stability for refractive surgery procedures, there is at least general agreement that more than 90% of appropriately selected patients achieve excellent uncorrected distance vision.

A Novel Laser Refractive Surgical Treatment for Presbyopia: Optics-Based Customization for Improved Clinical Outcome.

Sensors (Basel) 2017 Jun 13;17(6). Epub 2017 Jun 13.

Eye Clinic Orasis, Swiss Eye Research Foundation, CH-5734 Reinach, Switzerland.

Laser Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) is a proven treatment method for corneal refractive surgery. Surgically induced higher order optical aberrations were a major reason why the method was only rarely used to treat presbyopia, an age-related near-vision loss. In this study, a novel customization algorithm for designing multifocal ablation patterns, thereby minimizing induced optical aberrations, was used to treat 36 presbyopic subjects. Read More

[Laser in situ keratomileusis with microkeratome or femtosecond laser].

Ophthalmologe 2017 Jul;114(7):661-665

Klinik für Augenheilkunde, Goethe-Universität Frankfurt, Theodor-Stern-Kai 7, 60590, Frankfurt am Main, Deutschland.

Objective And Principles: In LASIK, after cutting a lamellating stromal corneal incision (flap) with a microkeratome or a femtosecond laser, the underlying tissue is treated with an excimer laser for refractive correction. The objective is to achieve independency from spectacles and contact lenses due to correction of ametropia.

Indications: Surgery is indicated when the patient wishes to achieve independency from spectacles and contact lenses. Read More
