Abstract

PURPOSE: To compare corneal aberration changes 1 year after myopic laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) performed with a mechanical microkeratome and IntraLase femtosecond laser. METHODS: Twenty four eyes of 15 patients underwent LASIK with the Hansatome microkeratome, and 23 eyes of 13 patients underwent LASIK with the IntraLase femtosecond laser. A standard ablation was performed with the Bausch & Lomb Technolas 217 excimer laser. Topography data were used to calculate corneal aberrations with a 3.0 mm and 5.00 mm pupil, before and 12 months after surgery. The increasing factor (IF), defined as the ratio between the postoperative and preoperative mean value of the optical aberration, was calculated. The method of Mulhern et al was used to evaluate the centration of ablation. The comalike aberration was correlated with the decentration of ablation. The Student t test was used for the statistical anaylsis. RESULTS: The postoperative mean decentration of ablation was
