Lasik Flap Thickness using the Zyoptix XP MicrokeratomeSusanne Stottmeister, Suphi Taneri** Travel grant by Bausch & Lomb
ASCRS Symposium, April 4-9, 2008, Chicago
To evaluate predictability and possible factors affecting flap thickness in laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) using the Zyoptix XP microkeratome.
Keratometry showed no influence.
Flap thickness was not correlated to central corneal pachymetry.
Age showed no influence.
Bilateral cuts with the same head size (120 µm or 140 µm, respectively) and different blades showed no dependance.
A similar predictability of the Zyoptix XP microkeratome
compared to the predecessor model (Hansatome) was observed.
