Abstract Details



Purpose:

To compare anterior chamber depth measurements before and after Lasik with 2 different devices.

Setting:

Gimbel Eye Centre, Canada.

Methods:

99 eyes were assessed preoperatively, 1 and 3 months after LASIK.

Results:

Mean (SD) spherical equivalent before LASIK was –4.06 (1.91) D. Significant decreases in anterior chamber depth were detected at 1 and 3 months after Lasik with the IOL master (p<0.001, p<0.001 respectively). No significant changes in anterior chamber depth were detected with the Orbscan IIz at 3 months.

Conclusions:

After Lasik, a significant decrease in anterior chamber depth was detected with the IOL master only. The 2 devices did not show good agreement and cannot be regarded as interchangeable.

Financial Disclosure:
