The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has given premarket approval to LaserSight Incorporated for the Kremer Excimer Laser to perform Laser In-Situ Keratomileuisis (LASIK) for correction of myopia and myopic astigmatism. The approval is for a single device and requires supplemental manufacturing approval by the FDA to manufacture or distribute additional lasers, and is for LASIK, using a 6 millimeter ablation zone, to treat myopia from -1.0 to -15.0 diopters with or without astigmatism ranging from 0.0 to 5.0 diopters.
