    Refractive lenticule extraction flap and stromal bed morphology assessment with anterior segment optical coherence tomography

    Purpose To evaluate the flap and stromal bed after refractive lenticule extraction using optical coherence tomography (OCT). Setting Singapore National Eye Centre, Singapore. Design Longitudinal case series. Methods Horizontal scans (RTVue) were taken preoperatively and after refractive lenticule extraction. Two procedures were performed: femtosecond lenticule extraction and small-incision femtosecond lenticule extraction. Flap and bed thicknesses were measured at the center (0.0 mm) and 1.5 mm and 3.0 mm to either side. Results At 1 week, the mean flap at 0.0 mm was borderline thicker (P=.056) and at +3.0 mm significantly thicker after femtosecond lenticule ...
