(1) In photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), the prototype procedure, the excimer laser was used to ablate directly Bowman's layer and anterior stroma but interaction of molecules released by the regenerating epithelium and activated stromal keratocytes leads to a high incidence of haze and removal of the epithelium causes significant pain.
However, not comparing the early SMILE outcome with those from other corneal refractive surgery results such as photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) or LASIK was an oversight.
Excimer laser photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) and laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) can also be used to treat posttransplant astigmatism [20].
Different retreatment options are available for corneas with compromised thickness, such as treatment of the flap undersurface, laser-assisted subepithelial keratectomy (LASEK), and trans- or subepithelial photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) [8, 9].
