BACKGROUND After penetrating keratoplasty, many patients have high ametropia, which is difficult to correct with contact lenses. We used excimer laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) on four eyes of four consecutive patients that had previous penetrating keratoplasty in an attempt to correct myopia and astigmatism. METHODS We used an automated microkeratome to make a lamellar flap and a Chiron Technolas 193-nm argon fluoride excimer laser. The laser was programmed for the desired myopic and… CONTINUE READING
