Preoperative evaluation consisted of uncorrected visual acuity for both--distance and near; best spectacle corrected visual acuity, manifest and cycloplegic refraction, ocular dominance, keratometry, applanation tonometry, scotopic pupillary size, tear film break up time, blinking rate, Schirmer test when necessary, pachymetry, slitlamp examination and computerized video keratography.
