Transepithelial PRK corrects long-term effects of radial keratotomy

Transepithelial PRK with application of mitomycin C can treat refractive instability after radial keratotomy, according to a study.
In two hospitals in Iran, 22 eyes of 22 consecutive patients who had undergone RK 17 to 22 years previously, with refractive error stable for at least 1 year, transepithelial PRK was performed. Based on topography, wavefront and refractive data, the epithelium and stroma were ablated in a single step using the corneal wavefront-guided transepithelial PRK nomogram of the Schwind Amaris 1050RS laser. Immediately after, MMC was applied to the stromal bed (Read more...)
