AimsTo study the effect of flap thickness on the visual and refractive outcome of myopic laser in situkeratomileusis (LASIK) surgery.MethodsA total of 196 myopic eyes with spherical equivalent (SE) from −2.00 to −5.00 dioptres which underwent LASIK were studied retrospectively. Uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA), best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and manifest refraction were measured up to 6 months postoperatively. Logistic and linear regression analyses were used to examine the correlation of… CONTINUE READING
