PURPOSE To evaluate flap thickness, flap diameter, and hinge length during laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) and to correlate these measurements with preoperative keratometric power, central corneal thickness, and patient refraction, gender, and age. METHODS In this prospective study of 50 eyes of 28 patients (mean age 31 +/- 6.6 yr; range, 24 to 43 yr) results of LASIK for myopia were analyzed (mean spherical equivalent refraction of -7.16 +/- 1.69 D; range, -2.75 to -13.50 D). Corneal… CONTINUE READING
