Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis in High Mixed Astigmatism With Optimized, Fast-Repetition and Cyclotorsion Control Excimer Laser – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To evaluate the visual refractive and aberrometric outcomes of laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) surgery for the correction of high mixed astigmatism using a new-generation excimer laser and optimized aspherical profiles.Design: Retrospective interventional case series.Methods: Fifty-two eyes of 36 patients (21-53 years) with primary mixed astigmatism over 3.0 diopters (D) were included. All cases underwent LASIK surgery using the sixth-generation excimer laser Amaris with cyclotorsion control and a femtosecond platform for flap creation. Visual, refractive, corneal topographic, and aberrometric outcomes were evaluated during a 3-month follow-up. Refractive astigmatic changes were analyzed by Alpins method.Results: A significant reduction of refractive sphere (Read more...)
