Enrollment: 30
Study Start Date: October 2008
Study Completion Date: March 2009
Primary Completion Date: March 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
Systane Ultra
Other: Systane Ultra
Ophthalmic Solution, 1 gtt, three times daily to both eyes for 1 month post operative
Other Name: Natural Tears
Active Comparator: 2
Bausch and Lomb Sensitive Eyes
Other: Bausch and Lomb Sensitive Eyes
Ophthalmic Solution, 1 gtt, three times a day in both eyes for 1 month after LASIK
Other Name: Saline Solution

Detailed Description:

This comparison will be made between bilateral eyes of the same patient following excimer laser ablation using the FDA-approved LADARVision 4000 Excimer Laser System or the WaveLight ALLEGRETTO WAVE™ Excimer Laser System. Post operative questionnaires regarding the use of the drops will be compared. Tear osmolarity and tear breakup time will be evaluated using Tear Lab and OQAS II.
