Spectral-domain OCT may reliably measure stromal bed thickness during LASIK

March 27, 2015

Intraoperative spectral-domain OCT may be a reliable alternative to measure stromal bed thickness before lifting the flap during LASIK surgery, according to a study.

Three readings were obtained with each device to evaluate repeatability and agreement based on intraclass correlation coefficient and reproducibility coefficient.
