PURPOSE To evaluate factors that influence corneal flap thickness with the Hansatome microkeratome. METHODS One hundred thirty-two eyes of 70 patients underwent laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK). Corneal flap thickness was measured by subtracting the intraoperative corneal bed pachymetry measurement from intraoperative total corneal pachymetry. Variables examined included plate thickness, ring size, blade use, temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, age, average keratometric power, and… CONTINUE READING
