OCT visualization of corneal structural changes in traumatic dislocation of LASIK flap
International Ophthalmology, 07/16/2012
Iovieno A et al. – A 45–year–old woman presented with a traumatic laser–assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) flap dislocation in the right eye. Anterior segment optical coherence tomography (OCT) showed the presence of macrostriae, flap stromal edema, epithelial hyperplasia between the striae and epithelial ingrowth. The flap was surgically repositioned with optimal visual recovery. Anterior segment OCT can efficiently visualize corneal structural changes associated with LASIK flap dislocation.
