    Repeatability of laser in situ keratomileusis flap thickness measurement by Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography

    Purpose: To evaluate the repeatability of Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) measurements of the thickness of femtosecond laser–created laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) flaps.Setting: Doheny Eye Institute, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, California, USA.Design: Case series, evaluation of diagnostic technology.Methods: In this consecutive series, Fourier-domain OCT (RTVue) was used to measure flap thickness 1 week after LASIK. Flaps were created with a Pulsion 60 kHz femtosecond laser programmed for 110 μm flap thickness. Each eye was scanned 2 times with a radial pachymetry pattern and 1 time with a horizontal line scan. Flap thicknesses were ...
