About

Wavefront scans are a common form of diagnostic test applied in preparing patients for laser eye surgery. An optical map of the eye is created by wavefront scanning, and information from these maps is used to program lasers used to correct focusing errors in the eye. Here the investigators are comparing how repeatable measurements are with a new wavefront scanner and one that is already in widespread use.

Full description

Aberrometers are used to measure each element of defocus (aberration) in an optical system. In LASIK, information derived from aberrometry (scans performed using aberrometers) is used to program the pattern of laser pulses delivered by an excimer laser in therapeutic reshaping of the cornea to correct defocus. To do this accurately, aberrometry findings need to be repeatable and correspond closely to manifest refraction. Here the investigators compare repeatability of measurements for a new aberrometer (Peramis) versus the aberrometer most widely used in contemporary wavefront guided laser vision correction (iDesign). The test aberrometer will be: Peramis (Schwind Eye-tech Solutions, Kleinostheim, Germany). Control aberrometer will be: iDesign (AMO, Santa Clara, CA)

60 participants in 4 patient groups

Myopia (Peramis)
Experimental group
Description:
Peramis aberrometry: 30 consecutive LASIK candidates with myopia and regular astigmatism who agree to participate in the study will have up to 4 aberrometry scans acquired consecutively using the Peramis (test) aberrometer.
Treatment:
Device: Peramis aberrometry
Myopia (iDesign)
Active Comparator group
Description:
iDesign aberrometry: The same 30 consecutive LASIK candidates scanned in the Myopia (Peramis) arm will also have up to 4 aberrometry scans acquired consecutively using the iDesign aberrometer (control) aberrometer. The order of scans (Peramis and iDesign) will be randomised.
Treatment:
Device: iDesign aberrometry
Irregular astigmatism (Peramis)
Experimental group
Description:
Peramis aberrometry: 30 consecutive cases with stage II-III keratoconus or post corneal transplantation cases with irregular astigmatism will have up to 4 aberrometry scans acquired consecutively using the Peramis (test) aberrometer
Treatment:
Device: Peramis aberrometry
Irregular astigmatism (iDesign)
Active Comparator group
Description:
iDesign aberrometry: 30 consecutive cases with stage II-III keratoconus or post corneal transplantation cases with irregular astigmatism will also have up to 4 aberrometry scans acquired consecutively using the iDesign aberrometer (control) aberrometer. The order of scans (Peramis and iDesign) will be randomised.
Treatment:
Device: iDesign aberrometry
