PURPOSE To evaluate the long-term corneal safety of topical mitomycin C (MMC) used during photorefractive keratectomy to prevent haze formation in highly myopic eyes. METHODS Twenty-eight patients with bilateral high myopia underwent photorefractive keratectomy. One eye was randomly assigned to intraoperative 0.02% MMC and the fellow eye to conventional treatment. Each eye was checked at baseline and at 5 years after surgery using in vivo corneal confocal microscopy. RESULTS At baseline… CONTINUE READING
