* As compared to conventional PRK. + The results presented in this section are from a prospective, non-randomized study of 230 eyes that had myopia with or without astigmatism and that were treated with topography-guided LASIK with the ALLEGRETTO WAVE® Eye-Q Excimer Laser System. Eyes had nearsightedness up to -9 D and astigmatism up to 6 D. ᴧ Pentacam is a trademark of OCULUS Optikgeräte GmbH.
