The Wellington Eye Clinic is participating in a clinical research study of a corneal refractive surgery procedure that aims to reduce or eliminate myopia (near-sightedness). The goal of the study is to evaluate the initial safety of the procedure.
Who can take part?
- If you have sight loss in one eye only.
- If you have sight loss in one eye that is best corrected visual acuity of 6/60 or worse. Please note that the procedure will be performed on the eye affected by sight loss only and will not affect your other eye.
- 22 years of age or older
- No active implanted device, such as heart pacemaker or defibrillator
- Not taking medications, such as Isotretinoin, Amiodarone hydrochloride, or Hydroxychloroquine
- No other eye conditions such as:
- Corneal disease
- Uncontrolled glaucoma
- Diagnosis of dry eye
- No previous corneal surgery, such as corneal transplant/implant
Please note that patients with a visual acuity of 6/60 or worse will most likely not gain any visual benefit from this treatment.
