Abstract Details


To report a Lasik procedure using microkeratome in a candidate with history of PRK after free flap formation 3 months previously .


This case was performed in Lasik Center Surabaya Eye Clinic, Surabaya, Indonesia.


A 37-year-old woman had a history of PRK in her right eye. Fifteen years after PRK, Lasik was performed with femtosecond laser to make the corneal flap. During the flap formation procedure, free flap was unfortunately happened. The free corneal flap tissue looked like a necrotic tissue with un-transparence yellowish condition. The Lasik surgery was cancelled. The left eye had been performed Lasik without any difficulty. Three months later Lasik was planned on her right eye. Microkeratome with 140 micron flap thickness was considered to be used instead of femtosecond.


The visual acuity of RE after the last Lasik procedure was 20/25.The flap was in good condition, no striae happened. The patient satisfied with the result.


The decision to choose a microkeratome instead of femtosecond to form the flap showed a very good result and seemed to be the safest way for this patient.
