Light propagation algorithm analysis of the corneal surface is a purely objective method based on behavior of light through a refractive surface of the ocular media; analyzing the focal behavior of the light as affected by an optical surface or refractive media in any given diameter may help us understand corneal behavior after hyperopic LASIK treatment.
Currently, LASIK is the most popular surgery to treat refractive error.[sup][1],[2],[3],[4] It is safe and effective to use LASIK to treat refractive amblyopia.[sup][5],[6],[7],[8],[9] However, the perioperative suction can cause elevation of the IOP to a level greater than 65 mmHg.
Different procedures have been used in refractive surgery which include photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), radical keratotomy (RK), laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK), laser thermal keratoplasty (LTK), small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) etc.4 Refractive surgeries with laser flap makers were approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1999 and femtosecond specifically for flap creation was approved in 2001.5 Femtosecond laser-assisted LASIK (femto-LASIK) is very successful latest innovation in refractive surgery because of its better outcome, long-term stable results, and lesser complications compared to other procedures.6 Femtosecond uses ultra-short duration of the pulses (10-15) causing significantly less damage to the collateral tissues.
