PURPOSE To compare results of laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) and laser epithelial keratomileusis (LASEK) for the treatment of myopia. METHODS Two groups of fifteen patients (30 eyes) each were assigned to either the LASIK group or the LASEK group. LASIK procedure: A Hansatome microkeratome with the ring at 9.5 mm was used to create the corneal flap (depth, 160 microm). The myopic correction was then registered on the Nidek EC-5000 excimer laser and the appropriate ablation performed… CONTINUE READING
