Oestrogen-induced changes in biomechanics in the cornea as a possible reason for keratectasia.

Abstract

AIM The risk of regression after photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) and the tendency to develop keratectasia after laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) procedure is higher in women than men. Currently, interest is focused on the influence of oestrogen on corneal stability after corneal refractive surgery. The aim of this experimental study was to… (More)
