Abstract Details

Purpose:

To determine the outcomes of Femtosecond Thin-flap LASIK for the correction of refractive errors after Penetrating Keratoplasty for keratoconus.

Setting:

Labbafinejad Medical Center, Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences

Methods:

In this prospective non-randomized case series, 23 eyes of 21 patients underwent Femtosecond Thin-flap LASIK for correction of refractive errors after Penetrating Keratoplasty for keratoconus with an interval of 52.6 ± 41.4 months (22 to 67 months). Visual acuity, refraction and keratometrywere evaluated before surgery and after mean of 22.4 ± 12.7 months of follow up (13 to 29 months).

Results:

No significant complications occurred. The mean preoperative myopia decreased from 1.89 ±1.08 D to 0.06 ± 0.84 D. Mean preoperative hyperopia decreased from 3.00 ± 1.7 D to -0.2 5± 0.61 D, and mean preoperative astigmatism decreased from 5.58 ± 1.5 D to -1.61 ± 0.64 D. The efficacy and safety index were 1.05 and 0.63, respectively.

Conclusions:

Femtosecond Thin-flap LASIK is effective, safe and predictable procedure for correction of refractive error after Penetrating Keratoplasty for keratoconus.
