Abstract : Purpose: Future advancements in refractive surgery. Investigate the utility of the current excimer lasers employed by the DoD in terms of induced aberrations to maximize refractive treatment. The impact on post-operative higher order aberrations between the currently available DoD laser platforms. Offer insight as to which provides the best overall image quality following refractive surgery in the active duty and DoD beneficiary population.
