ABSTRACT: Purpose To analyze the influence of specific demographic and ocular factors on ocular residual astigmatism (ORA) in myopic patients scheduled for LASIK. Setting University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf, Germany. Design Retrospective, cross-sectional data analysis. Methods We studied 2991 eyes from 2991 consecutive myopic patients who were scheduled for LASIK to investigate the influence of age, gender, the ocular dominance, subjective cylinder and topographic astigmatism, subjective sphere, and mesopic pupil size on preexisting ORA. The ORA was determined using Alpins´ vector analysis. Two subgroups defined by the ratio of ORA to preoperative refractive cylinder (R) were formed (ORA/R of ≥1.0 vs. <1.0). Results The mean ORA was 0.75 ±0.39 D (range, 0 to 2.00 D), 1372 (46%) eyes had ORA of 1.00 D or more. By applying Ordinary-least-square-estimation and Odds Ratios we showed that the subjective sphere, male gender, and the dominant eye were negative predictors for the degree of preoperative ORA, while increasing age and larger mesopic pupil sizes did not indicate an orientation of ORA. With-the-rule astigmatism meridian was more likely in eyes with low ORA while oblique and against-the-rule meridia were connected to high ORA. Conclusions The preoperative assessment of refractive surgery candidates should consider the interaction between topographic, refractive and ocular residual astigmatism as corneal refractive surgery is more successful in eyes where the cylinder mainly originates from the anterior cornea. The current data help to identify patients that are at high risk of having a significant difference between subjective cylinder and topographic astigmatism.Journal of Cataract and Refractive Surgery 11/2013;

ABSTRACT: Purpose To examine the impact of seasonality on refractive and visual outcome of laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) in myopic eyes. Setting Department of Ophthalmology, University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf, Hamburg, Germany and Care Vision Refractive Centers, Germany Design Retrospective, cross-sectional data analysis. Methods This study comprised 1052 eyes of 1052 consecutive myopic patients (419 males, 633 females; mean age at surgery 35.0±9.0 years) with mean preoperative refractive spherical equivalent (SE) of - 3.88±1.85 diopters (D). Two subgroups were defined, comprising patients undergoing surgery during either meteorological winter or summer. Manifest refraction, uncorrected and corrected visual acuity were assessed pre- and postoperatively. We applied robust regression analysis with efficiency index (EI), safety index (SI), and postoperative SE (in D) as dependent variables. Results At the 1-month (33.0±5.0 days) follow-up, the mean postoperative SE was -0.18±0.44 D. The EI of eyes with refractive surgery during summer was 0.023 higher (P=0.032) compared to those treated during winter, thereby indicating less efficiency. For the SI and postoperative SE, differences between summer and winter were not statistically significant. No change of more than one line on logMar scale was obtained. Conclusions Although being statistically significant, there is no clinically relevant difference in outcome of LASIK, which demonstrates its highly standardized quality. Prospective, longitudinal studies are warranted to address meteorotropic reactions through evaluating defined meteorological parameters.Journal of Cataract and Refractive Surgery 11/2013;

ABSTRACT: A 61-year-old woman presented with a paracentral buttonhole flap defect associated with a linear tear, extensive epithelial ingrowth, and macrostriae in the right eye. A laser in situ keratomileusis enhancement had been performed 3 weeks earlier. The epithelial ingrowth was removed after careful lifting of the flap, and tissue adhesive was used postoperatively as a barrier to further ingrowth. Six months postoperatively, the patient's corrected distance visual acuity had improved to 20/20 and the slitlamp examination showed no evidence of recurrent epithelial ingrowth. This case presents a novel approach to the management of a buttonhole defect.
