PURPOSE To make serial measurements of corneal haze and microscopic anatomy after photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) and compare the results with visual function measured at the same time points in the same single group of human subjects. METHODS Ten patients underwent -6.00-diopter, 6-mm PRK. The patients were reviewed frequently for 12 months. Corneal haze was measured objectively in two ways: (1) an opacification index was determined from the variance in digitized retroillumination images… CONTINUE READING
