Brief Summary:
This study will be a 12-month, prospective, multicenter, open-label, non-comparative, non-randomized clinical investigation conducted at 10 to 14 sites. A total of 383 subjects will be enrolled to achieve approximately 268 treated subjects, resulting in at least 241 evaluable subjects at the point of refractive stability. After signing the informed consent, subjects meeting all inclusion and exclusion criteria in both eyes may be scheduled for surgery. The follow-up visit schedule will be the same for each operative eye.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Wavefront-guided Lasik Monovision Treatment
Wavefront-guided LASIK monovision treatment of myopic subjects with presbyopia using the STAR S4 IR® Excimer laser System with the iDesign Refractive Studio.
Device: iDesign Refractive Studio with STAR S4 IR® Excimer laser System
Surgeons will perform wavefront-guided monovision LASIK for the treatment of myopic subjects with presbyopia based upon measurements obtained with an iDesign Refractive Studio.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The change in driving scale score from preoperative to postoperative as measured by the driving scale within the PROWL-M (Patient-Reported Outcomes with LASIK for monovision) questionnaire [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    To assess the effect of monovision LASIK treatment on difficulty with driving as measured by the driving scale within the PROWL-M (Patient-Reported Outcomes with LASIK for monovision) questionnaire

Ages Eligible for Study:   40 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Signed informed consent and HIPAA authorization.
  • At least 40 years of age at enrollment (date informed consent signed).
  • The refractive error (i.e. prescription) of both eyes, based on the iDesign system must be myopic with astigmatism up to -6.00 D spherical equivalent (SE), with astigmatism up to -3.00 D and minimum pre-operative myopia in their non-dominant eye at least as great as their targeted myopic retention.
  • At least one eye must require a myopic (nearsightedness) treatment.
  • Your distance vision must be 20/20 or better
  • Require an add power of +1.25 D or more but not greater than +2.00 D at 40 cm.
  • You have a history of contact lens wear within the last 4 weeks must demonstrate stable corrected vision
  • Rigid contact lenses must be removed for at least 4 weeks and soft contact lenses for at least 2 weeks prior to the first refraction used to establish stability.
  • If you meet the refractive stability criteria, contact lens wear is not permitted prior to surgery except as required to test monovision acceptance as described below in the Study Procedures, Contact Lens Trial section
  • Willing and capable of complying with follow-up examinations for the duration of the study.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • You are pregnant, breast-feeding, or intend to become pregnant during the study.
  • Concurrent use of systemic (including inhaled) medications that may impair healing, including but not limited to: antimetabolites, isotretinoin (Accutane®) within 6 months of treatment, and amiodarone hydrochloride (Cordarone®) within 12 months of treatment.
  • History of any of the following medical conditions, or any other condition that could affect wound healing: collagen vascular disease, autoimmune disease, immunodeficiency diseases, ocular herpes zoster or herpes simplex, endocrine disorders (including, but not limited to unstable thyroid disorders and diabetes), lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis.
  • You have a cardiac pacemaker, implanted defibrillator or other implanted electronic device.
  • History of prior intraocular or corneal surgery (including cataract extraction), active ophthalmic disease or abnormality.
  • Evidence of keratoconus, corneal dystrophy or irregularity, or abnormal topography.
  • Known sensitivity or inappropriate responsiveness to any of the medications used in the postoperative course.
  • Intolerance to monovision correction based on questionnaire responses to contact lens trial.
  • Participation in any other clinical study.
