Lasik for high hyperopia

Saw a post-op today of a high hyperopia patient.  He’s a nurse  in San Diego and he is one month out from Lasik on the Wavelight Allegretto 400.

Pre-op: 5 diopters of astigmatims each eye, and 1.5 diopters of astigmatism each eye.

Now:  Fully corrected each eye, and 20/15 vision.

Love this Allegretto Wave Eye-Q system.. nothing better for hyperopic Lasik.
