Predictability of corneal flap thickness in laser in situ keratomileusis using a 200 kHz femtosecond laser.

Abstract To compare the intended versus the resultant thickness of laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) flaps created with a new femtosecond laser and to report the 3-month postoperative refractive outcomes.

AB  - PURPOSE: To compare the intended versus the resultant thickness of laser in situ 
      keratomileusis (LASIK) flaps created with a new femtosecond laser and to report
      the 3-month postoperative refractive outcomes. SETTING: Wellington Eye Clinic,
      Dublin, Ireland. DESIGN: Retrospective consecutive case series. METHODS: A
      consecutive series of eyes having LASIK flaps created using a Wavelight FS200
      femtosecond laser were included in this analysis. Eyes with preoperative
      spherical equivalent (SE) myopic refractive errors up to -12.00 diopters (D),
      hyperopic refractive errors up to +5.50 D, and astigmatism up to 6.00 D received 
      primary LASIK. Outcomes included postoperative flap thickness and 3-month
      postoperative refraction. RESULTS: Outcomes in 431 eyes of 258 patients having
      LASIK with femtosecond flap creation were assessed. With an intended flap
      thickness of 120 mum, the mean post-LASIK flap thickness was 120.23 mum +/- 13.94
      (SD). In 349 of 813 eyes, EX500 optical pachymetry measurements were compared
      with Scheimpflug pachymetry readings. The mean corneal thickness was 553.52 +/-
      29.81 mum with optical pachymetry and 553.39 +/- 29.12 mum with the Pentacam
      rotating Scheimpflug camera. In 162 eyes, the flap thickness was measured with
      optical coherence tomography; the mean was 121.94 +/- 10.52 mum. Achieved flap
      dimensions were as intended. CONCLUSIONS: This study provides evidence of the
      predictability and lower variability of LASIK flaps created using the femtosecond
      laser. Consecutive patients having LASIK had good, predictable, and stable
      outcomes at the 3-month mark.
