Comparison of Corneal Wavefront-optimized and Wavefront-guided Alcohol-assisted Photorefractive Keratectomy Using Schwind Amaris 750S Laser for Myopia.

Korean J Ophthalmol 2020 Jun;34(3):210-218

Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Science, Seoul St. Mary's Hospital, The Catholic University of Korea College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Purpose: To compare the visual outcomes and corneal aberrations between wavefront-optimized (WFO) and corneal wavefront-guided (WFG) photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) in low to moderate myopia.

Methods: Twenty-seven eyes treated with WFO and 29 eyes treated with WFG PRK using a Schwind Amaris 750S Excimer laser were included after 6 months of postoperative follow-up. Uncorrected distance visual acuity, corrected distance visual acuity, refractive errors, corneal higher-order aberrations (HOA) and corneal thickness obtained using a Scheimpflug system, and central ablation depth and volume were evaluated during the preoperative period and again at the postoperative 6-month visits.

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

Differences in Simulated Refractive Outcomes of Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) and Laser In-Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) for Myopia in Same-Eye Virtual Trials.

Int J Environ Res Public Health 2019 12 31;17(1). Epub 2019 Dec 31.

Department of Biomedical Engineering, Cleveland Clinic, Cole Eye Institute, Cleveland, OH 44195, USA.

The use of computational mechanics for assessing the structural and optical consequences of corneal refractive procedures is increasing. In practice, surgeons who elect to perform PRK rather than LASIK must often reduce the programmed refractive treatment magnitude to avoid overcorrection of myopia. Building on a recent clinical validation study of finite element analysis (FEA)-based predictions of LASIK outcomes, this study compares predicted responses in the validated LASIK cases to theoretical PRK treatments for the same refractive error.

Combined corneal CXL and photorefractive keratectomy for treatment of keratoconus: a review.

Int J Ophthalmol 2019 18;12(12):1929-1938. Epub 2019 Dec 18.

Department of Ophthalmology, College of Medicine, Qassim University, Qassim, Buraidah 51452, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Keratoconus and iatrogenic keratectasia are the corneal ectatic disorders occurring due to biomechanical weakening of the cornea resulting in distorted images, myopia, and irregular astigmatism. Corneal collagen cross-linking (CXL) is performed to arrest keratoconus successfully. The main aim of this review is to discuss the safety and efficacy of the adjuvant therapies, such as the combination of CXL and photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) for the treatment of corneal ectatic disorders.

[SMILE keratorefractive surgery technique].

Vestn Oftalmol 2019 ;135(5):99-106

Research Institute of Eye Diseases, 11A Rossolimo St., Moscow, Russian Federation, 119021.

Small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) keratorefractive surgery technique is a laser surgery alternative to common methods that doesn't require laser ablation of the cornea. Despite its novelty, SMILE technique has already demonstrated positive clinical results comparable to Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) and Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK), which led to its widespread application in clinical practice. Compared with other keratorefractive techniques, SMILE has a number of distinct advantage including high biomechanical stability of the cornea, low risk of dry eye syndrome, absence of a corneal flap and associated complications, preservation of corneal epithelium.

Department of Corneal and External Eye Disease, Singapore National Eye Centre, Singapore.

: Laser in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK), photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) and small-incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) are safe and effective refractive surgical procedures. However, complications include regression of treatment and iatrogenic keratectasia which can be severe and sight-threatening. In order to reduce these complications, simultaneous corneal cross-linking (CXL) is currently being added to these refractive procedures. Read More

[Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) as a Procedure for Correction of Residual Refractive Errors after Radial Keratotomy].

Klin Monbl Augenheilkd 2019 Jul 2. Epub 2019 Jul 2.

Ophthalmology, St. Petka Eye Clinic, Varna, Bulgaria.

Background: A large number of myopic patients were treated by radial keratotomy (RK) in recent years. Despite being effective in many cases, the refractive results of this surgical intervention proved to be of limited predictability, and it frequently resulted in over- or under-correction in the long term. In this study, we discuss the intermediate and long-term results of a topography-guided photorefractive keratotomy (PRK) in a consecutive series of patients who were previously treated for myopia by radial keratotomy.

In Vivo Prediction of Air-Puff Induced Corneal Deformation Using LASIK, SMILE, and PRK Finite Element Simulations.

Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci 2018 11;59(13):5320-5328

Imaging, Biomechanics and Mathematical Modeling Solutions Lab, Narayana Nethralaya Foundation, Bangalore, India.

Purpose: To simulate deformation amplitude after laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK), small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE), and photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) with finite element models.

Methods: Finite element simulations of air-puff applanation on LASIK, SMILE, and PRK models were performed on a cohort of normal eyes, which had undergone refractive treatments. Short- and long-term wound healing responses were considered for SMILE and LASIK models based on evidence of microdistortions in Bowman's layer and crimping of collagen fibers. Read More

Photorefractive keratectomy for correcting residual refractive error following cataract surgery with premium intraocular lens implantation.

Taiwan J Ophthalmol 2018 Jul-Sep;8(3):149-158

Department of Ophthalmology, Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, Linkou, Taiwan.

Purpose: The aim of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness and predictability of photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) for correcting residual refractive error following cataract surgery with premium intraocular lens (IOL) implantation.

Methods: We conducted a retrospective review of the medical records of patients who received PRK for correcting residual hyperopia, myopia, and/or astigmatism due to unsatisfied uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA) after cataract extraction with implantation of aspheric, diffractive multifocal, or toric IOL from September 2011 to December 2017. Pre-cataract surgery, pre- and post-PRK data including UDVA, best-corrected distance visual acuity, and refractive status were analyzed. Read More
