BACKGROUND To determine whether the outcomes of photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) for myopia are age-dependent. METHODS The influence of age on PRK outcomes was analyzed for one eye of each of 72 patients divided into two groups: 39 patients (18 to 26 years) and 33 patients (35 to 54 years). The influence of the amount of preoperative myopia (low myopia(More)
The aim of this report is to present the effects of spherical photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) by excimer laser on myopic astigmatism. Spherical PRK was performed in 96 eyes with myopia associated with astigmatism of between 0.75 and 2.00 diopters (D) using the Summit excimer laser. The reduction both in sphere and in cylinder was found to be highly(More)
The aim of this study was to find out whether the outcome of excimer laser photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) in the second eye can be predicted from the results of the first, and to determine whether we should modify our therapeutic approach to the second eye according to the results of the first. Bilateral PRK was performed in 73 patients using the Summit(More)
