Abstract Details


To describe the technique and outcomes of slit lamp irrigation for the management of LASIK flap striae.


Private practice, Moorfields Eye Hospital, London, UK.


Retrospective review of 32 eyes that underwent slit lamp irrigation for flap striae at the day one post-operative assessment following routine LASIK.


The slit lamp irrigation technique was found to be safe and effective. No patient required return to the Operating Room for further flap lifting/ reposition. Final visual acuity results were similar to that expected in the absence of day one postoperative LASIK flap striae.


LASIK flap repositioning at the slit lamp was fast, effective and acceptable to patients without inducing unnecessary anxiety.
