Abstract

APL and the Wilmer Eye Institute worked jointly to conduct studies in the field of refractive surgery. The researchers developed a standardized phototherapeutic keratectomies (PTK) treatment procedure in rabbits to evaluate the development of haze in a controlled manner. They demonstrated that PTK treatments necessary to correct high myopia, resulting in greater levels of haze than the shallower treatments for low myopia.
