  1. STD = Standard Deviation, LASIK = Laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis, LASEK = Laser-Assisted Subepithelial Keratectomy, PRK = Photorefractive Keratectomy, Epi-LASIK = Epithelial LASIK, RLE = Refractive Lens Exchange, Phakic IOL AC = Phakic intra-ocular lens in anterior chamber.
  2. Only the cases in which the target postoperative refraction was emmetropia, were included. Follow-up was 1-6 months. Refraction in Diopters.
