Intraocular lens power calculations in eyes with previous corneal refractive surgery: review and expert opinion.

Ophthalmology 2020 Jun 29. Epub 2020 Jun 29.

Cullen Eye Institute, Department of Ophthalmology, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX. Electronic address:

Intraocular lens (IOL) power calculations are less accurate in eyes that have undergone corneal refractive surgery. A wide range of methods have been proposed. We reviewed the methods and outcomes of IOL power calculations in eyes with previous laser in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK), excimer laser photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), or radial keratotomy (RK).

Refractive approaches to visual rehabilitation in patients with keratoconus.

Curr Opin Ophthalmol 2020 Jul;31(4):261-267

Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, W. K. Kellogg Eye Center, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA.

Purpose Of Review: As keratoconus is a chronic disease affecting young people, vision-related quality of life is often significantly impaired in patients with this disease. However, successful management of keratoconus, including visual rehabilitation strategies, can improve quality of life in these patients. This review will describe clinical approaches that improve vision-related quality of life in patients with stable keratoconus. Read More

Vector Analysis of Changes in the Higher Order Ocular Aberrations and Central Corneal Thickness After T-PRK and Fs-LASIK.

Acta Inform Med 2020 Mar;28(1):24-28

NHS National Services Scotland, Edinburgh, United Kingdom.

Introduction: Refractive surgery procedures, transepithelial photorefractive keratectomy (T-PRK) and femtosecond laser in situ keratomileusis (Fs-LASIK) are regarded as safe and efficacious methods for correcting myopia and myopic astigmatism. These two methods do not have much differences in results when treating spherical myopia, while some differences does exist in treatment of myopic astigmatism. Vector analysis presents powerful tool to show the real differences between these two methods regarding higher order ocular aberrations and central corneal thickness of treated eyes. Read More

Myopia and myopic astigmatism photorefractive keratectomy: applying an advanced multiple regression-derived nomogram.

Graefes Arch Clin Exp Ophthalmol 2019 Jan 18;257(1):225-232. Epub 2018 Aug 18.

Care-Vision Laser Centers, Tel-Aviv, Israel.

Purpose: To evaluate a multiple regression-derived nomogram for myopia and myopic astigmatism photorefractive keratectomy (PRK).

Methods: Regression modeling derived a formula for spherocylindrical correction in wavefront-optimized PRK (nomogram II). Treatment outcomes between eyes with myopia and myopic astigmatism using the manufacturer's nomogram (nomogram I) in the years 2010-2013 were retrospectively compared with eyes treated using nomogram II in the years 2014-2015.

Studying the factors related to refractive error regression after PRK surgery.

BMC Ophthalmol 2018 Aug 14;18(1):198. Epub 2018 Aug 14.

Department of Ophthalmology, School of Medicine, Kermanshah University of Medical Sciences, Kermanshah, Iran.

Backgtound: Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) is used for a wide range of refractive errors such as low to moderate myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. While many improvements have been made in laser application and accuracy as well as the modes of corneal flap removal, and although the results are somewhat predictable, regression of refractive errors is still a common complaint among the patients undergoing refractive surgery with Excimer Laser. We aimed to determine related factors of regression following photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) in different types of refractive errors. Read More

Mechanisms of Optical Regression Following Corneal Laser Refractive Surgery: Epithelial and Stromal Responses.

Med Hypothesis Discov Innov Ophthalmol 2018 ;7(1):1-9

HDR Research Center, Hoopes Vision, 11820 S. State Street Suite #200, Draper, UT 84020, United States.

Laser vision correction is a safe and effective method of reducing spectacle dependence. Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK), Laser In Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK), and Small-Incision Lenticule Extraction (SMILE) can accurately correct myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. Although these procedures are nearing optimization in terms of their ability to produce a desired refractive target, the long term cellular responses of the cornea to these procedures can cause patients to regress from the their ideal postoperative refraction.

Keratectasia after laser-assisted subepithelial keratectomy for myopia: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Mar;97(12):e0094

Rationale: Recently, some ophthalmologists performed PRK or LASEK surgeries in FFKC suspicious patients, which is supposed to prevent FFKC evolvement via fibrotic scar formation. Our report indicates that keratectasia can occur after LASEK in FFKC suspicious patients, highlighting the importance of stricter regulation of patient recruitment before the procedure and postoperative follow-up.

Patient Concerns: This is a report of a 25-year-old man with poor corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA) 6 years after LASEK. Read More
