Comparison between Surgical Outcomes of LASIK with and without Laser Asymmetric Keratectomy to Avoid Conventional Laser Refractive Surgery Adverse Effects.

Sci Rep 2020 Jun 26;10(1):10446. Epub 2020 Jun 26.

Woori Eye Clinic, Daejon, South Korea.

This study compared one-year postoperative outcomes of laser refractive surgery combined with laser asymmetric keratectomy (LAK) and laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK)for myopia correction in middle-aged patients (aged 40-49 years) with a total corneal thickness deviation (summed across four directions) ≥ 80 microns. The control group (n = 26; 52 eyes) underwent LASIK; the comparison group (n = 26; 52 eyes) underwent combined laser refractive surgery and LAK. Age, spherical equivalence, uncorrected visual acuity (near and far), corneal irregularity on the Orbscan map, sum of corneal thickness deviations in four directions, corneal thickness distribution, distance between the maximum posterior elevation (best-fit sphere; BFS) and visual axis, and postoperative blurring scores were analysed retrospectively between the groups.

Longitudinal Changes in Optical Quality, Spatial Vision, and Depth Vision after Laser Refractive Surgery for Myopia.

Optom Vis Sci 2020 May;97(5):360-369

The Cornea Institute, L V Prasad Eye Institute, Hyderabad, Telangana, India.

Significance: Laser refractive surgery procedures are efficacious at correcting myopia, but they result in long-term deterioration of optical quality that affects monocular and binocular visual performance. The study shows that the optical quality of the two eyes needs to be similar to optimize binocular visual performance after surgery.

Purpose: This study aimed to systematically analyze longitudinal changes in optical quality, high- and low-contrast logMAR acuity and random-dot stereoacuity before and after three refractive surgery procedures for correcting myopia. Read More

Laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK) with a mechanical microkeratome compared to LASIK with a femtosecond laser for LASIK in adults with myopia or myopic astigmatism.

Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2020 04 7;4:CD012946. Epub 2020 Apr 7.

Universidad Anáhuac México, Campus Norte, Centro de Investigación en Ciencias de la Salud (CICSA), Facultad de Ciencias de la Salud, Av. Universidad Anáhuac 46, Huixquilucan, Mexico, Mexico, 52786.

Background: Laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is a surgical procedure that corrects refractive errors. This technique creates a flap of the outermost parts of the cornea (epithelium, bowman layer, and anterior stroma) to expose the middle part of the cornea (stromal bed) and reshape it with excimer laser using photoablation. The flaps can be created by a mechanical microkeratome or a femtosecond laser. Read More

Vector Analysis of Changes in the Higher Order Ocular Aberrations and Central Corneal Thickness After T-PRK and Fs-LASIK.

Acta Inform Med 2020 Mar;28(1):24-28

NHS National Services Scotland, Edinburgh, United Kingdom.

Introduction: Refractive surgery procedures, transepithelial photorefractive keratectomy (T-PRK) and femtosecond laser in situ keratomileusis (Fs-LASIK) are regarded as safe and efficacious methods for correcting myopia and myopic astigmatism. These two methods do not have much differences in results when treating spherical myopia, while some differences does exist in treatment of myopic astigmatism. Vector analysis presents powerful tool to show the real differences between these two methods regarding higher order ocular aberrations and central corneal thickness of treated eyes. Read More

Differences in Simulated Refractive Outcomes of Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) and Laser In-Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) for Myopia in Same-Eye Virtual Trials.

Int J Environ Res Public Health 2019 12 31;17(1). Epub 2019 Dec 31.

Department of Biomedical Engineering, Cleveland Clinic, Cole Eye Institute, Cleveland, OH 44195, USA.

The use of computational mechanics for assessing the structural and optical consequences of corneal refractive procedures is increasing. In practice, surgeons who elect to perform PRK rather than LASIK must often reduce the programmed refractive treatment magnitude to avoid overcorrection of myopia. Building on a recent clinical validation study of finite element analysis (FEA)-based predictions of LASIK outcomes, this study compares predicted responses in the validated LASIK cases to theoretical PRK treatments for the same refractive error.

[SMILE keratorefractive surgery technique].

Vestn Oftalmol 2019 ;135(5):99-106

Research Institute of Eye Diseases, 11A Rossolimo St., Moscow, Russian Federation, 119021.

Small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) keratorefractive surgery technique is a laser surgery alternative to common methods that doesn't require laser ablation of the cornea. Despite its novelty, SMILE technique has already demonstrated positive clinical results comparable to Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) and Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK), which led to its widespread application in clinical practice. Compared with other keratorefractive techniques, SMILE has a number of distinct advantage including high biomechanical stability of the cornea, low risk of dry eye syndrome, absence of a corneal flap and associated complications, preservation of corneal epithelium.
