Abstract

Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) is capable of changing the refractive power of the human cornea. Retinoscopy is an objective method of measuring the refractive power of the eye. The authors performed PRK in 28 myopic eyes with the Aesculap Meditec MEL 60 ArF excimer laser. During a prospective study, the subjective and objective refractive power of the eyes were assessed and compared 6 months after PRK. The average preoperative refractive error was: -5.11 +/- 2.51 D and -5.08 +/- 2.20 D on the right side (n = 16) and on the left side (n = 12), respectively. In order to obtain the best corrected visual acuity 6 months after PRK, the right and left eyes needed an average of -0.09 +/- 0.26 D and -0.33 +/- 0.64 D postoperative correction, respectively. The postoperative refractive change could be verified with the retinoscopy at +/-0.5 D accuracy. The authors describe a double refractive corneal ring after PRK, which may disturb retinoscopy. The post-PRK refractive change can be verified by retinoscopy. Postoperative funduscopy, fundus photography and possible future retinal procedures were not disturbed by the double corneal refractive rings in myopic eyes.
