Leading Refractive Eye Surgery Experts from Trusted LASIK Surgeons Directory Educate Peers at ASCRS Annual Meeting
Date:4/29/2009

uthwestern Medical Center in Dallas, authored or co-authored over 14 presentations at the ASCRS meeting. In "Wavefront-Guided Ablation Retreatment in Myopic Eyes" (E.M. Mohamed; O. Muftuoglu; R. Bowman; D. Cavanagh; V. Mootha; J.P. McCulley), the researchers concluded that that using Wavefront-guided LASIK to retreat patients who have already undergone keratorefractive surgery is effective, predictable, and safe. In their study of "Repeatability of Anterior and Posterior Corneal Higher-Order Aberrations in 4 mm, 6 mm, and 8 mm Diameters Measured by Pentacam System" (J. Wojtowicz; O. Muftuoglu; E.M. Mohamed; V. Mootha; R. Bowman; D. Cavanagh; J.P. McCulley), they found that determination of abnormalities of how our eye focuses an image is more complex than just near sightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. The focusing of an image includes patterns called "high order aberrations" of which the above are just a part of the sum of aberrations (HOA's). Custom or high definition treatments rely on the measurement of these to plan surgical approaches for the correction of vision. This study demonstrates the importance of doing these measurements in a careful, unhurried manner, and how multiple consistent measurements are needed to be certain the treatment correctly represents the actual fingerprint of the eye.

Other papers presented by Doctors McCulley and Bowman included "Outcomes of Limbal Relaxing Incisions with Apodized Diffractive Multifocal IOL Implantation"; "Laser-in-Situ Keratomileusis for Residual Refractive Errors After Apodized Diffractive Multifocal IOL Implantation" and a comparison of two different excimer laser systems, Visx and WaveLight Allegretto for the correction of farsightedness. They concluded that more recent VISX models have resulted in significantly improved visual outcomes over previous machines. Researchers also showed that the WaveLight Allegretto with 400 Hz enables pati
