PURPOSE

  • To evaluate the impact on visual outcome of Femtosecond LASIK flap complications

  • Retrospective review

  • Compared to uncomplicated Femtosecond LASIK flaps


METHODS

  • Retrospective case series

    • 586 eyes of 293 patients

    • Four surgeons

    • All femtosecond LASIK

    • All surgeries at Joint Warfighter Refractive Surgery Center at Lackland AFB, TX

  • Endpoint at one month

  • ETDRS testing

  • Data analysis using paired t-test


METHODS

  • Types of complications (no surgical intervention required)

    • Diffuse lamellar keratitis

    • Microstriae

    • Flap tears

    • Incomplete side cut

    • Epithelial ingrowth

  • Compared to uncomplicated femtosecond LASIK eyes


DISTRIBUTION OF COMPLICATIONS


RESULTS:1D POSTOPERATIVE UCVA

RESULTS:1 MONTH VISUAL ACUITIES

RESULTS:PREOPERATIVE VS. POSTOPERATIVE UCVAs

RESULTS:PREOPERATIVE VS. POSTOPERATIVE BSCVAs

CONCLUSIONS

  • No statistically significant difference was observed in BSCVA among the group of patients with abnormalities in their flaps compared to normals

  • The overall incidence of intraoperative complications in femtosecond laser flap creation is exceedingly low at 1.02% in this series


CONCLUSIONS

  • The overall incidence of postoperative flap complications is low at 7.16% and ultimately visually insignificant

  • All patients, regardless of complication, had comparable post operative BSCVA to preoperative BSCVA
