Matched Population Comparison of the Visian Implantable Collamer Lens and Standard LASIK for Myopia of ?3.00 to ?7.88 Diopters

Journal of Refractive Surgery Vol. 23 No. 6 June 2007

Donald R. Sanders, MD, PhD

Quote:
Another search of the peer-reviewed literature reported the incidence of flap striae after LASIK to range from 1.1% to 3.5%.28-32 The variety of causes of flap striae include misalignment of the corneal flap after flap replacement, flap desiccation and contraction during laser ablation, flap wrinkling during stretching, movement of the corneal flap on the first postoperative day, or the tenting effect of the corneal flap over the ablated stromal bed.33 The present LASIK series had three (1.8%) eyes with striae, yet all cases resolved quickly. Striae are relatively Uncommon; neverthenevertheless, careful flap handling and positioning can prevent many striae.


BE's comment: "tenting effect of the corneal flap over the ablated stromal bed" = THE FLAP DOESN'T FIT!
