Such calculations, be they for one-way, two-way, with or without refractive media, always return results which speak of no unusual effects.
Light propagation algorithm analysis of the corneal surface is a purely objective method based on behavior of light through a refractive surface of the ocular media; analyzing the focal behavior of the light as affected by an optical surface or refractive media in any given diameter may help us understand corneal behavior after hyperopic LASIK treatment.
