Results of clinical trials

Approval of WaveLight's Allegretto Wave technology for LASIK surgery in the United States is based on the results of clinical trials of the company's wavefront-optimized procedure mandated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

In the clinical trial for the correction of nearsightedness, uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA) results 3 months after surgery were:
84.4% of the eyes were 20/20 or better.
98.0% of eyes were 20/40 or better.
In the clinical trial for the correction of farsightedness (with and without astigmatism) UCVA results 6 months after surgery were:
67.5% of the eyes were 20/20 or better.
95.3% of the eyes were 20/40 or better.
