BACKGROUND Photorefractive keratectomy can cause corneal scarring and visual loss in highly myopic eyes. We evaluated laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) because it has the theoretical advantage of preserving both the corneal epithelium and Bowman's layer. METHODS In a prospective study, LASIK was performed in 62 myopic eyes (42 patients) using the Automatic Corneal Shaper (Chiron Vision) and the Keracor 116 excimer laser (Chiron Technolas). We measured refraction and visual acuity, and… CONTINUE READING
