Greetings. I am a 49 y/o patient still interested in LASIK surgery options. My contact prescriptions are a -8.25 (right) and -7.50 (left). I was screened by an ophthalmologist for LASIK surgery in 2003, but was ruled out as a candidate due to the fact that there was not much experience (at that time) with LASIK treatment of patients with optic nerve head drusen (ONHD). In other words, I understood the fact that the suction rings used in this procedure could represent a significant risk to patients with ONHD & there was simply not much experience or case studies. I recently came across a request for patients to participate in a clinical trial on Wavefront-Optimized (Allegretto Wave Laser treatment) versus Wavefront-Guided (VISX S4) laser treatments at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Are you aware of any other LASIK surgery advancements that could allow patients with ONHD to be eligible for treatment ? thanks.
