Purpose: This investigation planned to assess the impacts of Laser In Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK)
with prevalent and nasal pivot areas on corneal sensation and dry eye condition. Planned randomized
similar investigation was completed from February 2018 to December 2019. The subsequent term were
preoperatively evaluated just as 1week and 1,3,6 months postoperatively. This examination included 600
eyes of 420 patients (180 guys and 240 females), all patients went through LASIK medical procedure for
rectification of nearsightedness as well as nearsighted astigmatism utilizing MEL 90 Excimer laser for stromal
removal , Moria M2, SBK microkeratomes were utilized to make a prevalent and nasal pivoted folds. At the
point when patients chose to have medical procedure, they were randomized to get nasal or predominant
pivot medical procedure based on the randomization succession. Focal Cochet-Hat esthesiometry, Schirmer
fundamental tear discharge test, tear film separation time (TBUT) were assessed preoperatively and at multi
week , 1, 3, and a half year postoperatively. After medical procedure, the corneal sensation diminished
essentially in both nasal-pivot and prevalent pivot folds at multi week however got back to gauge by half
year. The Schirmer essential emission test esteems were not altogether changed postoperatively in the nasal
pivoted and predominant pivoted eyes. TBUT diminished inconsequential at multi week and multi month
postoperatively and recouped by 3 months after medical procedure in the two gatherings. There were no
huge contrasts in all the abstract and target boundaries tried between nasal-pivoted and unrivaled pivoted
folds whenever point. There is no intraoperative and postoperative inconveniences in everyone’s eyes.
There was a huge decrease in corneal sensation following LASIK in nasal and predominant gatherings.
Sensation improved at untouched stretches and re-visitations of nearly, preoperative levels around a half
year postoperatively. Related with the corneal denervation is a prompt postoperative increment in dry-eye as
estimated by TBUT and schirmer test that improved utilizing oils and with ensuing visits.
