Dr. Anand Shekhar Handi, Dr. Prashanthkumar Achar*, Dr. Mohammed Sameeruddin

ABSTRACT

In the past decade the introduction of femtosecond lasers (FSL) has made a drastic change in the way refractive surgery is being done. the Intralase Femtosecond Laser was released for use in the year 2001by the American owned Abbott Medical Optics, This technique has the advantage that the laser is used to cut the tissues of the lenticule a part of the corneal stroma instead of ablating it with the excimer laser. With this in mind we tried to assess the visual outcome and complication of femtosecond Lasik at the tertiary eye care centre. Methods: A case series study was conducted at tertiary eye care institute. The patients were within age group of 18 to 40 years of age attending the outpatient department suffering from difficulty in vision due to refractive error like myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. This study included 101 patients with the refractive error undergoing femtosecond lasik surgery. Follow up was be performed after a period of 2days, 5 days, 2 weeks, 1 month of surgery. Results: In this study, we found majority of patients undergoing femtosecond lasik were in the age group of 20-24 years.

Consistent results sprang up during the study period in subsequent post op day follow up on 5th day, 2 weeks and 1 month. Conclusions: Femtosecond Lasik had Excellent Visual Outcomes and Lesser Complications.

Keywords: Visual Complication, Femtosecond Lasik.
