PURPOSE To study changes in corneal sensitivity and Schirmer I scores following laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) and the correlation between the two. METHODS Twenty-three patients who had LASIK at The Gimbel Eye Center, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, participated in the study. All were asymptomatic for severe dry eyes before surgery. All patients underwent a Schirmer test (without anesthetic), a filament corneal sensitivity test, and slit-lamp microscopy including staining with lissamine green… CONTINUE READING
