Hyperopic LASIK with low-energy femtosecond laser yields few complications

A low-energy femtosecond laser enabled predictable flap creation and a low retreatment rate for hyperopic LASIK with non-custom ablation, according to a study.The prospective case series study included 800 eyes of 413 patients who underwent hyperopic LASIK where a femtosecond laser used for flap creation. Primary outcome measures were spherical equivalent, logMAR uncorrected and corrected distance visual acuity (UDVA/CDVA), defocus equivalent, intraoperative and postoperative complications, aberrometry and flap thickness. Follow-up visits occurred at 1, 4 and 30 days and 2, 4 and 9 months postoperatively.
