PURPOSE To evaluate the potential effect of topical mitomycin C (MMC) on the corneal endothelium of myopic patients undergoing photorefractive keratectomy (PRK). METHODS Sixteen eyes with a planned ablation depth >75 microm underwent PRK followed by 0.02% MMC applied for 12 seconds using a methylcellulose sponge. Endothelial specular microscopy was performed with the Keeler-Konan specular photomicroscope in 16 eyes before and at least 1 year after surgery. Mean follow-up was 18 months (range… CONTINUE READING
