Paper Abstract

Rapid development of ArF excimer laser keratectomy discovered new problems connected with incessant eye movements during the operation. The authors report the results of these movements study using TV camera, assisting the operation of myopia correction, and special programs developed to animate the IBM PC compatible PCVISIONplus frame grabber. Three kinds of movements are described: one-point sight fixation, having not and having a preferable direction of movements, and two or even more points of sight fixation. The only radical way to compensate for all these types of movements is automatic laser beam tracking during the operation.
