Abstract Details

Purpose:

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

Setting:

Private practice, Moorfields Eye Hospital, London, UK.

Methods:

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

Results:

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.

Conclusions:

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

Financial Disclosure:

NONE
