clinical trials to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the Technolas Teneo excimer laser for vision correction surgery for myopia and myopic astigmatism.
Simple myopic astigmatism was defined as plano sphere (<-0.5D to < +0.5D) and cylinder of [greater than or equal to] -0.50D, simple hyperopic astigmatism was defined as plano sphere (< -0.5D to +0.5D) and cylinder value was negative (> -0.50D) or vice versa and the cylinder value was greater than a sphere.
The aim of our study was to compare 6-month uncorrected distant visual acuity (UDVA) and best corrected distant visual acuity (BCDVA) means, refractive results, safety, and efficacy of single-step TPRK with alcohol-assisted PRK (AAPRK) as primary outcomes and comparison of surgical time, pain scores, and haze levels, complete epithelial healing time, as secondary outcomes among the two procedures when used to correct mild to moderate myopia and myopic astigmatism.
(1-3) There was slightly thinner cornea in high myopes and in myopic astigmatism.[R] Review of literature also indicates that decrease in corneal thickness in myopic patients is due to anterior segment change, as eyeball is elongated and emmetropes too had thinner Central Corneal Thickness.

The aim of the current study is to retrospectively evaluate the long-term (12-year) safety, efficacy, predictability, and stability of LASIK for the correction of myopia and myopic astigmatism, with special attention to the analysis of refractive regression after this surgery.
Occasionally, good near acuity may be achieved with monofocal IOLs, warranted by residual myopia, myopic astigmatism and depth of focus due to small pupils.
Of the 105 children, with RE in the urban area, 8.66% had myopia, 1% had hypermetropia, 3.5% had simple myopic astigmatism, 0.06% had simple hypermetropic astigmatism, 3.03% had compound myopic astigmatism, and 0.33% had compound hypermetropic astigmatism.
All patients included in the study were over 18 years old, had a spherical equivalent (SE) refraction value over 6.0 diopters (D), and had myopia or myopic astigmatism. Other inclusion criteria were absence of other ocular disease, having normal topography and regular retinoscopic reflex, a smallest pachymetry value greater than 500 [micro]m, having stable refraction for the previous 2 years, and a cylindrical value smaller than 1.5 D.

The study involved 60 patients (120 eyes) with myopia and compound myopic astigmatism without syndromic xerosis who used the SCL for the first time, who have been screened in the outpatient department of the 2nd clinic of TMA from 2011 to 2013.
