PURPOSE To evaluate the size, shape, and uniformity of the videokeratographic functional optical zone (FOZ) after laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) in 2 cohorts of patients with equivalent amounts of preoperative myopic or hyperopic astigmatism. SETTING Pepose Vision Institute, St. Louis, Missouri, USA. METHODS Eyes with myopic or hyperopic astigmatism (n=27 in each group) that had LASIK with the Visx Star S3 laser were retrospectively selected to match for level of preoperative… CONTINUE READING
