Abstract

We report 2 patients who developed subepithelial opacities and myopic regression after photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) and laser-assisted subepithelial keratectomy. Both cases were treated successfully with manual debridement of the epithelium, phototherapeutic keratectomy, and PRK with amniotic membrane application.
