PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of mitomycin C (MMC) 0.02% in inhibiting haze formation after excimer laser photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) for residual myopia following radial keratotomy (RK). METHODS A prospective, nonrandomized, noncomparative interventional case series was conducted of 22 eyes (14 patients) with residual myopia after RK performed at a single institution. All eyes were treated with PRK and a single intraoperative topical application of MMC 0.02% solution for… CONTINUE READING
