Abstract

Purpose : The advent of femtosecond laser cataract surgery has garnered much interest in both academic and private Ophthalmology practices across the nation. Using the femtosecond laser to perform arcuate incisions for corneal cylinder correction is becoming more common. Our study seeks to evaluate the effect of intrastromal and anterior penetrating arcuate incisions on corneal keratometry in femtosecond laser cataract surgery using the CATALYS machine.

Methods : Eyes having both intrastromal and anterior penetrating corneal incisions with the CATALYS machine were analyzed. Preoperative anterior segment parameters included anterior chamber depth, central corneal thickness, length of incision, IOL used and laser time were collected. Preoperative and 1-month postoperative corneal keratometry were measured using the IOL master 500 from Zeiss and the NIDEK AR-1 autorefractor.

Results : Eyes having both intrastromal and anterior penetrating corneal incisions with the CATALYS machine were analyzed. Preoperative anterior segment parameters included anterior chamber depth, central corneal thickness, length of incision, IOL used and laser time were collected. Preoperative and 1-month postoperative corneal keratometry were measured using the IOL master 500 from Zeiss and the NIDEK AR-1 autorefractor.

Conclusions : Eyes having both intrastromal and anterior penetrating corneal incisions with the CATALYS machine were analyzed. Preoperative anterior segment parameters included anterior chamber depth, central corneal thickness, length of incision, IOL used and laser time were collected. Preoperative and 1-month postoperative corneal keratometry were measured using the IOL master 500 from Zeiss and the NIDEK AR-1 autorefractor.
