Comparison of flap adhesion strength using the Amadeus microkeratome and the IntraLase iFS femtosecond laser in rabbits.

PURPOSE To compare adhesion strength of flaps created with a mechanical microkeratome and the IntraLase femtosecond laser as well as to analyze the effect of different side-cut configurations. METHODS A flap was created in four groups of New Zealand white rabbits--microkeratome group (Amadeus II microkeratome, Ziemer Group AG [5 eyes; 9-mm suction ring… CONTINUE READING
