BACKGROUND: Femtosecond lasers (fs-lasers) are established cutting instruments for the creation of LASIK flaps. Previous studies often showed even rougher surfaces after application of fs-laser systems compared to lamellar keratotomy with mechanical microkeratomes. When cutting the cornea with fs-lasers, an intrastromal gas development occurs, which has a potentially negative influence on the cutting quality if the gas cannot be dissipated; therefore, manufacturers have chosen the way of gas assimilation in so-called pockets...

PURPOSE: To demonstrate how using the Wavelight Contoura measured astigmatism and axis eliminates corneal astigmatism and creates uniformly shaped corneas. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective analysis was conducted of the first 50 eyes to have bilateral full WaveLight(®) Contoura LASIK correction of measured astigmatism and axis (vs conventional manifest refraction), using the Layer Yolked Reduction of Astigmatism Protocol in all cases. All patients had astigmatism corrected, and had at least 1 week of follow-up...

PURPOSE: To show how an incorrect manifest astigmatism axis can cause an abnormal induced astigmatism on a new axis. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Four eyes of three patients were treated primarily with WaveLight(®) EX500 wavefront optimized (WFO) treatments for astigmatism. All four eyes needed enhancements and were analyzed retrospectively via WaveLight(®) Contoura to determine the reason for the incorrect astigmatism treatment. Two of the eyes were retreated with topographic-guided ablation, and two were treated with WFO correction...

PURPOSE: To demonstrate how higher-order corneal aberrations can cancel out, modify, or induce lower-order corneal astigmatism. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Six representative eyes are presented that show different scenarios in which higher-order aberrations interacting with corneal astigmatism can affect the manifest refraction. WaveLight(®) Contoura ablation maps showing the higher-order aberrations are shown, as are results of correction with full measured correction using the LYRA (Layer Yolked Reduction of Astigmatism) Protocol...

PURPOSE: To demonstrate how Wavelight Contoura can be used to repair corneas damaged by trauma and prior poor surgical outcomes. METHODS: Four representative eyes are presented that show different scenarios in which highly irregular corneas can be corrected with Wavelight Contoura using a protocol (named the San Diego Protocol) designed to use the information in Contoura processing. Both laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) and photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) were used...

INTRODUCTION: Thermal conditions during photorefractive keratectomy might be an important issue related to the corneal wound healing and long-term outcomes. AIM: Authors tried to find out the importance of temperature conditions during the treatment. METHOD: One eye of 90 patients has been included into the study. Photorefractive keratoctomy was applied with Carl Zeiss MEL 70, MEL 80 and Wavelight Allegretto excimer lasers. EBRO TLC 730 infrared thermometer was used for the measurement of surface temperature of the cornea before epithelial removal, as well as before and after the treatment...

UNLABELLED: Photorefractive ablation is inevitably accompanied by oxidative stress of the cornea and weakening of its biomechanical and photoprotective properties. AIM: To validate the expediency of riboflavin use in photorefractive ablation for photoprotection of the cornea and cross-linking. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The effects of riboflavin use in photorefractive ablation was first studied in a series of in vitro and in vivo experiments performed on 56 eyes of 28 rabbits, and then on 232 eyes of 142 patients with different degrees of myopia...

PURPOSE: To determine and compare the repeatability of anterior corneal higher order aberrations (HOAs) using a Placido-based topographer (Allegro Topolyzer; WaveLight Technologie AG, Alcon Laboratories, Erlangen, Germany) in a sample of normal and keratoconic eyes. METHODS: Three repeated measurements of each cornea of normal and keratoconic eyes were taken with the Allegro Topolyzer. Repeatability of the HOAs (3rd- and 4th-order individual values and normalized polar Zernike coefficients, coma-like, root mean square (RMS) up to 8th-order values, HOA RMS, and total RMS for 6-mm pupil diameter) and central corneal power (3-mm pupil) were analyzed...

PURPOSE: To assess the suitability of a new 345 nm ultraviolet (UV) femtosecond laser for refractive surgery. SETTING: Department of Ophthalmology, University of Erlangen-Nürnberg, Erlangen, Germany. DESIGN: Experimental study. METHODS: Twenty-five porcine corneas were used for stromal flap or lamellar bed creation (stromal depth, 150 μm) and 15 rabbit corneas for lamellar bed creation near the endothelium. Ultraviolet femtosecond laser cutting-line morphology, gas formation, and keratocyte death rate were evaluated using light and electron microscopy and compared with a standard infrared (IR) femtosecond laser...

PURPOSE: To compare postoperative changes in apparent photopic and mesopic pupil size and centration in relation to cornea reflection landmarks after cataract surgery. SETTING: Clinical and Research Eye Institute, Athens, Greece. DESIGN: Prospective consecutive case study. METHODS: Pupils were imaged for pupil size and corneal vertex location before and 1-month after cataract surgery. Digital analysis of pupil images was used to determine the Cartesian coordinates (nasal-temporal, horizontal axis, superior-inferior, vertical axis) of the first Purkinje reflection point (approximating the corneal intersection of the visual axis [corneal vertex]) to the pupil geometric center (approximating the corneal intersection of the line of sight [corneal apex])...

PURPOSE: To determine the distribution of ocular biometric components and their correlation with age and sex during the ages of ocular development in a 6- to 18-year-old population in Iran. METHOD: In this cross-sectional study, which was performed in October 2012, multi-stage stratified cluster sampling was used to sample the study population from Dezful schools, a city in the southwest of Iran. Biometric examinations were done by an experienced optometrist using the LENSTAR/BioGraph (WaveLight AG, Erlangen, Germany)...

OBJECTIVE: To determine flap thickness variation in 110 µm thickness flap made by FS200 femtosecond laser and sub-Bowman keratomileusis (SBK) microkeratome for studying the potential factors that affect the flap thickness. METHODS: It was a case-control study. Sixty patients were divided into two groups for laser in situ keratomileusis. The corneal flaps were made by using Alcon Wavelight FS200 femtosecond laser or MORIA SBK microkeratome. Central corneal flap thickness was calculated by subtraction pachymetry...

To analyze photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) outcomes in myopia and myopic astigmatism correction using the WaveLight Allegretto Wave Eye-Q(®) excimer laser system (WaveLight Laser Technologie AG, Erlangen, Germany). 222 eyes of 151 patients underwent PRK (mean age 33.5 ± 6.8 years). Pre-operative best spectacle-corrected visual acuity (BSCVA) ranged from 0.4 to -0.1 logMAR (mean -0.03 ± 0.06). Mean spherical equivalent (SE) was -3.29 ± 1.20 D. Efficacy, predictability and safety were evaluated. Minimum follow-up was 3 months...

PURPOSE: To evaluate programmed versus achieved laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) flap central thickness and investigate topographic flap thickness variability, as well as the effect of potential epithelial remodeling interference on flap thickness variability. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Flap thickness was investigated in 110 eyes that had had bilateral myopic LASIK several years ago (average 4.5 ± 2.7 years; range 2-7 years). Three age-matched study groups were formed, based on the method of primary flap creation: Group A (flaps made by the Moria Surgical M2 microkeratome [Antony, France]), Group B (flaps made by the Abbott Medical Optics IntraLase™ FS60 femtosecond laser [Santa Ana, CA, USA]), and Group C (flaps made by the Alcon WaveLight(®) FS200 femtosecond laser [Fort Worth, TX, USA])...
