While laser and incisional refractive surgery offer the promise to correct visual refractive errors permanently and predictably, variability and complications continue to hinder wide-spread acceptance. To explain variations, recent studies have focused on the role of corneal wound healing in modulating refractive outcomes. As our understanding of the corneal response to refractive surgery broadens, it has become apparent that the response of one cell, the corneal stromal keratocyte, plays a… CONTINUE READING
