Laser in situ keratomileusis after conductive keratoplasty

J Cataract Refract Surg. 2004 Mar;30(3):702-5. doi: 10.1016/j.jcrs.2003.08.010.


We present a patient in whom laser in situ keratomileusis was used to treat residual hyperopia with astigmatism after conductive keratoplasty (CK). Previous CK did not affect initial flap creation, the ability to lift the flap manually 3 weeks after its initial preparation, or the refraction, topography, and refractive stability after the flap was created.
