Changes in corneal topography after excimer laser photorefractive keratectomy for myopia.

Computer-assisted analysis of corneal topography was performed in 17 normally sighted human eyes during the first year after excimer laser photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) for myopia. Laser ablation of the central cornea produced an optical zone with a smooth power transition to the peripheral cornea. Decentration of the ablation was noted in some eyes (less than 0.5 mm in 3 eyes, 0.5 to 1.0 mm in 10 eyes, 1 to 1.5 mm in 3 eyes, and 2.1 mm in 1 eye), suggesting that careful alignment of the laser beam is critical. Improved methods to align the ablation within the center of the entrance pupil are needed. In 12 of 17 eyes, the topographic pattern appeared to stabilize between 3 and 7 months after PRK. In the remaining five eyes, central ablation power changed by more than 0.5 diopters (D) between the 6- and 12-month examinations. Regression was more common and more pronounced in eyes with intended corrections more than 5 D, whereas the majority of eyes with intended corrections of 5 D or less showed good correspondence between the final change in central ablation power and the attempted correction. Two eyes had a loss of at least two lines of best spectacle-corrected visual acuity that was attributable to irregular astigmatism, decentration of the ablation, and/or corneal opacification.[1]
