To determine the accuracy of LASIK flaps created with a new femtosecond laser.
Fichte, Endl & Elmer Eyecare;private practice, Buffalo, New York USA
In this single surgeon, single center evaluation, 28 LASIK flaps created with a femtosecond laser (VICTUS; Bausch + Lomb Technolas) were assessed to determine the accuracy of the procedure. The intended flap thickness was 120 microns. The achieved thickness of the flap was measured using optical coherence tomography (OCT) (Visante;Zeiss)
The mean achieved flap thickness was 120.375 microns compared with an intended flap thickness of 120 microns. No patient lost any lines of best spectacle corrected vision (BSCVA) compared to pre-operative measurements. All procedures were uneventful. The flaps were easy to lift and good flap quality was observed.
Initial results indicate the VICTUS femtosecond laser reliably and accurately produces good quality LASIK flaps.
