Outline

Text

Purpose: To evaluate and compare aberrometry, corneal topography and refraction measurements after Femtosecond assisted flap- and intracorneal lenticule preparation in different ablation patterns.

Material and method: We used the VisuMax and the Mel 80 (Carl Zeiss Meditec) for flap- or lenticule preparation. Postoperative aberrometry was examined with the Topcon KR-1W aberrometry, videokeratography and refraction.

Results: Aberrometry, corneal topography and refraction varied significantly in a.m. femtosecond laser surgery.

Conclusion: Intracorneal femtosecondlaser assisted lenticule preparation seems to be the most precise and less aberration inducing method. A bigger patient group has to be evaluated in the near future to achieve statistically more significant results.
