Abstract: Objectives: To evaluate the early effects of femtosecond laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) surgery on retinal ganglion cell thickness (GCT), peripapillary retinal nerve fiber thickness (NFT), and central macular thickness (CMT) obtained by spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) in a healthy population. Materials and Methods: This case-control study included data from the right eye of 40 subjects without any disease other than refractive error and who had undergone femtosecond LASIK surgery. The preoperative, postoperative 1-hour, and postoperative 3-week GCT, NFT, and CMT values obtained by SD-OCT were compared. Results: The mean age was 27.54±5.99 years (18-45 years). GCT, NFT, and CMT were 18.43±6.03 µm, 107.90±9.01, and 234.3±21.2 ?m preoperatively; 18.05±5.93 µm, 108.08±8.92 ?m, and 230.1±22.6 µm at postoperative 1 hour; and 17.86±5.27 µm, 107.98±10.13, and 236.3±25.1 ?m at postoperative 3 weeks (p=0.159, 0.85, and 0.254, respectively). Conclusion: There were no changes in GCT, NFT, and CMT values evaluated with SD-OCT in the early period after femtosecond LASIK surgery.
