Methods:

Results:

In 3 month follow up 75 to 92% reached the attempted CORRECTION (± 1.00 D). „(mean increase is 4 lines) 3 months. And in 1 year follow up all of the examined eyes(31 out of 40) gained at least 3 lines on snellin acuity tests

Conclusions:

„Femtolasik is an effective procedure for pt with myopic astigmatism post PKP. „It is also relatively a safe procedure with minimal complications regarding the surgery itself and the graft. „However; more work should be done regarding the endothelial cell count, and topographic changes over years.
