Refractive surgery is a dynamically developing branch of ophthalmology. Patients’ expectations grow and so does the range of methods for correcting refractive errors. All this evokes the need for better surgical solutions and improvements in the patient’s comfort and safety during and after keratorefractive procedures. The understanding of biomechanical changes in the corneas of patients who undergo photorefractive keratectomy and laser-assisted in situ
keratomileusis requires long-term observation of changes in corneal topography, refraction and structure as well as an analysis thereof. The obtained data might help refractive surgeons guide patient selection for a given keratorefractive procedure or determine the timing of repeat surgery.
