PURPOSE To compare clinical outcomes between the IntraLase femtosecond laser and the mechanical microkeratome for creating flaps during laser in situ keratomileusis. DESIGN Nonrandomized clinical trial. METHODS The study involved a total of 55 eyes of 30 patients, with 27 eyes of 16 patients comprising the microkeratome group and 28 eyes of 14 patients comprising the IntraLase group. Refractive errors, visual acuity, higher-order aberrations, contrast sensitivity, and corneal sensitivity… CONTINUE READING
