J Cataract Refract Surg. 2004 Mar;30(3):709-14. doi: 10.1016/S0886-3350(03)00521-2.

Abstract

We report a case of dense and visually significant corneal haze after laser-assisted subepithelial keratectomy (LASEK). Visually significant corneal haze after LASEK can be successfully treated with manual debridement and intraoperative mitomycin-C.
