Thirty patients, selected at random from a group of 300, had received treatment to both eyes with a minimum of six months follow-up on the second eye. Forty-four patients, selected at random from a group of 120, had received treatment to one eye only with five months of follow-up. The results show a high level of satisfaction with the results of the procedure. © Williams & Wilkins 1994. All Rights Reserved.
