PURPOSE To demonstrate the feasibility of developing a screening tool based on corneal topography to detect previous myopic laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK). SETTING Clinical data from a private clinic analyzed in a university setting. METHODS Two hundred thirty-three topographies were randomly selected so 1 topography per patient was used: 150 from unoperated corneas and 83 from corneas that had LASIK to correct myopia. The mean surgical correction was -4.40 diopters (D) +/- 2.53 (SD… CONTINUE READING
