In the absence of [H.sub.2][O.sub.2], polymer B-11 having a 1 : 1 molar ratio between the boronic acid and acrylamide units showed a broad excimer emission in the range of 430-600 nm in addition to a monomer emission in the range of 370-410 nm (Figure 1).
Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) was introduced in the late 1980s, and is the oldest method of surface ablation by Excimer.1-4 Among the most important Complications that are listed for PRK Corneal haze and myopic postoperative regression can be referred to.5-7 Many studies have investigated the results of PRK and introduced this procedure as safe, effective, and predictable method to correct myopia.6,8-9

The principle of action of these probes is based on the excimer formation at the tandem junction where a pyrene unit on the 3,-terminus of one component of the probe interacts with a pyrene unit on the 5,-terminus of another component.
