Refractive Mgmt/Intervention

    In this surgical video, Drs. Gabriel Valerio and Edward Manche demonstrate a standard photorefractive keratectomy (PRK). The epithelium is removed via an Amoils brush, and an excimer laser is applied to the stromal bed to reshape the cornea. Mitomycin C is then applied to the stromal bed, the ocular surface is irrigated with chilled balanced salt solution (BSS), and a bandage contact lens is placed on the cornea, where it remains until the epithelium is completely healed.
