Summary

Comparison of Customized Laser ablation: Comparing visual acuity and wave patterns of the allegretto Wavelight Vision and ViSX Platforms to determine which laser would be most beneficial for reducing varied refractive errors is the primary objective for this research project. individuals of both genders, aged 18 or older scheduled for custom LaSiK procedure would be invited to participate in this comparison study of data points. Comparative analysis of refractive errror results, visual acuity, and features from the wave patterns will produce a furthered base of information to use in laser selection for future custom LaSiK candidates.

Participant Eligibility

* 18 or older
* Both genders
* All races
* Scheduled patients for Custom Lasik
