Autonomous Technologies puts eye lasers on trial:
This article was originally published in Clinica
Autonomous Technologies has begun US clinical trials of its T-PRK laser system as a treatment for far-sightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism. AT's T-PRK (Tracker-assisted Photorefractive Keratectomy) excimer laser has a very narrow beam and uses laser radar to track the eye during treatment. The multicentre trials will study the laser's use in treating up to +6 diopters of hyperopia and -6 diopters of astigmatism.
