Abstract Details


The purpose is to evaluate the efficacy of the Intralase IFS 150 femtosecond laser in post keratoplasty astigmatism.


Tygervalley Eye and Laser Centre, Cape Town , South Africa


Intrastromal astigmatic keratomy is done in an ambulatory setting under topical anaesthesia with the IFS 150 Intralase laser in post keratoplasty patients. The Hanna nomograms were used. Best corrected acuity , k readings and pentacams pre and post op were studied and recorded. Complications were recorded.


Visual outcome and results are presented.


The Intralase offers an alternative method which is non invasive . The rehabilitation is remarkably shorter than modified type incisional keratotomy and safer. Most patients had improved visual acuity.
