Hyperopic laser in situ keratomileusis with the Nidek EC-5000 excimer laser. 10/17/2000 Zadok D, Maskaleris G, Montes M, Shah S, Garcia V, Chayet A.
Ophthalmology. 2000 Jun;107(6):1132-7.

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy, safety, and predictability of hyperopic laser in situ keratomileusis (H-LASIK) using modified software. DESIGN: Retrospective, noncomparative case series. PARTICIPANTS: The first 72 consecutive eyes of 44 patients with up to +5.00 diopters (D) hyperopia. INTERVENTION: Hyperopic LASIK using the Automatic Corneal Shaper (ACS; Chiron Vision, Claremont, CA) and the Nidek EC-5000 excimer laser (Nidek, Tokyo, Japan). MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Uncorrected visual acuity, manifest spherical equivalent (MSE), best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), and complications were studied. RESULTS: At 6 months, in the low hyperopia group (<3.00 D), mean MSE was +0.30 +/- 0.71 D, with 88.9% eyes within 1 D of emmetropia compared with +1.09 +/- 0.92 D and 51.8% within 1 D of emmetropia in the moderate hyperopia group (> or =3.00 D; P = 0.003).
