Abstract

Purpose: : To report the results of laser-in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) surgery performed with the WaveLight Allegretto Eye-Q 400 Hz laser at a single-site academic center.

Methods: : We performed a retrospective chart review of all patients who underwent laser vision correction from October 2006 to present. We analyzed the spherical equivalent, uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA) and rate of enhancement data of the first 220 eyes. Complications of the procedure were recorded. All flaps were cut with the femtosecond laser without complication (IntraLase, Intralase Corp., CA).

Results: : Treatment correction ranged from preoperative manifest spherical refraction from -12.00 to +4.75 diopters (D) and cylindrical refraction up to -5.00 D. At 6-month follow-up 87.7% of patients were within +/- 0.50 D of aimed correction. Out of all patients that were aimed to be plano, 74% achieved UCVA of 20/20. Eight of 220 eyes (3.6%) required enhancement. No complications were found.
