PURPOSE To examine topographic irregularities known as steep central islands that may occur after excimer laser refractive surgery and affect visual acuity. METHODS We reviewed the computed corneal topographic maps of 35 eyes that had undergone excimer laser photorefractive keratectomy with an excimer laser for compound myopic astigmatism or anisometropic myopia. Steep central islands were defined as areas of steepening of at least 3 diopters and 1.5 mm in diameter. A classification system… CONTINUE READING
