Abstract Details


To evaluate ablation depth with the intraoperative optical coherence pachymetry (OCP) during myopic LASIK surgery.


Prospective series of 59 eyes of 32 patients operated on with the Alcon refractive suite equipped with OCP.


Corneal thickness was measured before and after the ablation.


Mean stromal depth was 20.68 m/D with a 6.5 mm optical zone , and 15.79 m/D with a 6.00 mm optical zone . We found a good correlation between attempted correction and ablation depth (0.756; p<0.05).


Intraoperative online pachymetry enabled the measurement of stromal ablation depth during LASIK. A larger series of patients is necessary to validate our preliminary clinical results. FINANCIAL INTEREST: NONE
