Abstract

To demonstrate how Wavelight Contoura can be used to repair corneas damaged by trauma and prior poor surgical outcomes. Four representative eyes are presented that show different scenarios in which highly irregular corneas can be corrected with Wavelight Contoura using a protocol (named the San Diego Protocol) designed to use the information in Contoura processing. Both laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) and photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) were used. Highly aberrant corneas with large amounts of warpage can be corrected safely with the Wavelight Contoura system. The San Diego Protocol requires individual analysis of each case with decisions based on the level of warpage and the level of epithelial hyperplastic compensation. The need for a second refractive power equalization procedure should be planned for. Contoura measured refraction can be integrally used as part of the San Diego Protocol to safely repair highly warped corneas. The refractive outcomes show dramatic improvement in vision, best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), refraction, and topographic uniformity.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 24 March 2017.
All research outputs
#11,106,132
of 12,488,808 outputs
Outputs from Clinical Ophthalmology
#1,435
of 1,597 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#219,104
of 256,601 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Clinical Ophthalmology
#27
of 32 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,488,808 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,597 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.2. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 256,601 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 32 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
