PURPOSE To evaluate the ocular surface changes in patients with laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK)-induced neurotrophic epitheliopathy. METHODS Seven consecutive patients with LASIK-induced neurotrophic epitheliopathy were studied prospectively and compared to a control group (seven consecutive patients who had LASIK- but without neurotrophic epitheliopathy). Bilateral sequential LASIK was performed at a 1-week interval; the first operated eye of each patient was considered for statistical… CONTINUE READING
