OBJECTIVE To assess the posterior corneal power and asphericity changes after myopic laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) and to correlate these changes with the amount of correction and the residual stromal bed thickness. DESIGN Prospective nonrandomized (self-controlled) comparative study. PARTICIPANTS Fifty-seven eyes of 14 women and 15 men, mean age at the time of surgery 33 +/- 9 (range, 19-53) years with a spherical equivalent (SEQ) of -1.00 to -15.50 (mean, -5.07 +/- 2.81) diopters… CONTINUE READING
