A comparative confocal microscopy analysis after LASIK with the IntraLase femtosecond laser vs Hansatome microkeratome.

PURPOSE: To evaluate and compare confocal microscopy findings between a femtosecond laser and a mechanical microkeratome.

METHODS: Eighteen eyes of nine patients underwent LASIK. Corneal flaps were created with the femtosecond laser in the right eyes and a mechanical microkeratome in the left eyes. The corneal flap interface was analyzed in all eyes with a confocal microscope at 1 week and 1 month postoperatively.

RESULTS: All eyes showed small reflective particles at the corneal flap interface. The mean number of reflective particles was not statistically significantly different at 1 week (P = .078) and 1 month (P = .28) using a femtosecond laser and a mechanical microkeratome.

CONCLUSIONS: Confocal microscopy findings at the corneal flap interface showed a similar number of particles using both systems.
