Abstract:

Purpose : To assess corneal flap thickness post LASIK by using OculusHR pentacarn imaging. Methods: This clinical trial included 18 eyes of 11 all patients who underwent LASIK for myopia Preoperatively, the central corneal thickness( CC7') measurement using ultrasound pachymetry (Sonomed Inc. Lake Success, NY). ‚ÄěPreoperative Callus pentacam pachymetry and topography was done for all cases. Mona microkeratome M2 was used for creating flap using head 130. After creating the flap the corneal thickness of the remaining tissues was measured in the central point to find the thickness of flap by subtracting this value from total corneal thickness . One week post operative Pentacam imaging using the fine comeal mode 100 scan images was done covering the cornea in 360degree in 2 seconds.
