Abstract Details

Purpose:

To evaluate the clinical outcomes , the efficacy and safety of femtolasik for correcting refractive errors after Deep Anterior Lamellar Keratoplasty (DALK) .

Setting:

Ophthalmology Unit, Department of Medicine, Surgery and Neuroscience, University of Siena, Siena, Italy. Department of Medicine, Surgery and Neuroscience, Ophthalmic Hospital, Rome, Italy. Prima Vista Eye Clinic,Rome, Italy.

Methods:

We performed femtolasik in 11 eyes of 10 patients for residual refractive errors after deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty for keratoconus and corneal opacities. The preoperative sphere was between -0.50 and -7 diopters and cylinder between -1.25 and -7 diopters All treatments were performed with the Abbott iLASIK Platform , composed of excimer laser Visx Star S4 IR , the femtosecond laser Intralase FS 150Hz and aberrometer iDesign ,after at least 6 months after removal of the sutures.

Results:

The average postoperative sphere was -0.18 diopters ,the average postoperative cylinder was 1.36 diopters. We had no intraoperative or postoperative complication. In many cases we have had an improvement in BCVA.

Conclusions:

Femtolasik for correcting refractive errors after Deep Anterior Lamellar Keratoplasty is a effective and safe technique and can be an excellent opportunity for the correction of refractive errors after DALK.
