PURPOSE To develop a computational approach to corneal biomechanical risk analysis in refractive surgery and to investigate its utility in an enigmatic case of unilateral ectasia after bilateral LASIK. METHODS Preoperative corneal elevation datasets from both eyes of a patient who developed unilateral post-LASIK ectasia were used to construct geometrically patient-specific, microstructurally motivated finite element models. Models were assessed before and after implementation of case-specific… CONTINUE READING
