Abstract Details


to compare the outcomes of the wavefront-guided LASIK and standard LASIK methods in the treatment of induced refractive errors following penetrating keratoplasty (PKP).


The S. Fyodorov Eye Microsurgery State Institution, Russia.


we observed 32 eyes (32 patients) with residual ametropy after the PKP, out of which 14 eyes were operated by the wavefront-guided customized LASIK technology : group I, 18 eyes by the standard LASIK technology ;group II. The uncorrected (UDVA) and corrected (CDVA) visual acuities, manifest refraction and HOAs were recorded before and after LASIK.


at 6 months, the mean cylindrical component decreased in the group I from -6.53±1.64 D to -1.12±0.97 D, in the group II from -6.23±2.7 D to -2.36±1.68 D. Postoperatively the HOA root mean square (RMS) decreased from 3.88±1.15 μm to 2.65±0.18 μm after the wavefront-guided LASIK and increased from 3.65±0.11 μm to 4.31±0.23 μm after the standard LASIK (р<0.05). UDVA compared with preoperative values significantly increased in the group I from 0.04±0.12 to 0.71±0.22, in the group II from 0.05±0.08 to 0.41±0.25. The postoperatively UDVA was higher than the preoperatively CDVA in all cases after the wavefront-guided LASIK.


The wavefront-guided LASIK is effective, safe and predictable procedure for treatment of induced refractive errors after the PKP.
