Dupps The use of computational mechanics for assessing the structural and optical consequences of corneal refractive procedures is increasing. In practice, surgeons who elect to perform PRK rather than LASIK must often reduce the programmed refractive treatment magnitude to avoid overcorrection of myopia. Building on a recent clinical validation study of finite element analysis (FEA)-based predictions of LASIK outcomes, this study compares predicted responses in the validated LASIK cases to theoretical PRK treatments for the same refractive error. Simulations in 20 eyes demonstrated that PRK resulted in a mean overcorr...

Conclusion: While corneal refractive procedures appear safe in patients with a history of optic neuritis, our data suggest that their efficacy may be reduced. PMID: 31875098 [PubMed]

Conclusions: The biomechanically-corrected bIOP from the Corvis ST provided post-FS-LASIK measurements that were in closest agreement with those obtained before surgery. In comparison, GAT-IOP, ORA-IOPg, ORA-IOPcc and CVS-IOP appeared to be more influenced by the changes in corneal biomechanics caused by FS-LASIK. PMID: 31869261 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

In the 20 years since LASIK has been around, doctors in the U.S. have performed more than 19 million of these procedures. There haven't been many high-quality, long-term studies done on the outcomes, but the research that does exist finds the procedure to be safe and effective.
