PURPOSE To report the development of posterior linear stromal haze after simultaneous photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) followed by corneal collagen cross-linking (CXL). METHODS Combined simultaneous customized PRK followed by corneal collagen cross-linking was performed in 23 patients (28 eyes) with keratoconus. Corneas were examined biomicroscopically(More)
A 28-year-old man with progressive pellucid marginal degeneration (PMD) had photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) followed by same-day corneal collagen crosslinking (CXL) for progressive PMD 12 months after intrastromal corneal ring segment implantation (Intacs). No intraoperative or early postoperative complications occurred. Nine months postoperatively, the(More)
PURPOSE To describe the visual outcomes of three patients who had LASIK flap buttonhole and were treated immediately with photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) and topical mitomycin C (MMC) 0.02%. METHODS Three patients underwent bilateral LASIK with the SCHWIND Carriazo-Pendula 90 microm head microkeratome. In all three cases, a buttonhole flap occurred in(More)
Fabry disease is an X-linked lysosomal storage disorder resulting from a deficiency of the hydrolytic enzyme α-galactosidase A (α-Gal-A). It is characterized by progressive lysosomal accumulation of globotriaosylceramide (Gb3) and multisystem pathology, affecting the skin, nervous and cerebrovascular systems, kidneys, and heart.

PURPOSE to present a patient in whom, during LASIK with the IntraLase femtosecond laser (Abbott Medical Optics), unintended epithelial (instead of anterior stromal) flaps were created in both eyes. METHODS a 28-year-old man underwent bilateral LASIK using the IntraLase femtosecond laser programmed to create 100-microm flaps. Flap creation was performed(More)
PURPOSE To report a case of interface corneal stromal irregularities after flap creation with the advanced IntraLase femtosecond (150 Hz) laser system (Abbott Medical Optics, Inc.). METHODS Case report. RESULTS An 18-year-old man underwent bilateral laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) using the IntraLase femtosecond laser to create 110-µm flaps. The(More)
