PURPOSE To evaluate flap dimensions and cut deterioration with repeated blade use in an automated microkeratome. METHODS The Automated Corneal Shaper (Chiron-Adatomed, Munich, Germany), 160-microm plate attached, was used to make a corneal flap in 90 pig cadaver eyes, reusing blades up to five times. Flap diameter was measured by planimetry and thickness… CONTINUE READING
