Abstract Details


To study optic nerve changes after transient elevation of intraocular pressure (IOP) during flap creation in Femtosecond LASIK and LASIK with microkeratome.


Ophthalmosurgical clinics 'New Vision' Kiev, Kharkov, Ukraine


20 patients with myopia from -1.0 to-6.0 and astigmatism from 0 to -3.0 D without contraindications for LASIK surgery were divided in two groups. In the first group corneal flap was created by Femtosecond LASIK LensEx, in the second group was used microkeratome Carriazo-Pendular. Changes in optic nerve were evaluated using OCT, HRT and visual field examinations before LASIK, 1 and 6 month after.


There is no statistically significant difference OCT, HRT and visual field examinations in both cases.


Transient IOP elevation does not influence on the optic nerve during flap creation both by Femtolaser and microkeratome.
