Comparison of dry-eye disease severity after laser in situ keratomileusis and laser-assisted subepithelial keratectomy
Journal of Cataract & Refractive Surgery, 06/12/2012
Dooley I et al. – There were no significant differences in dry–eye disease markers or tear osmolarity between LASIK and LASEK patients at any stage after surgery up to 1 year. Although tear osmolarity remains one of the highest predictive tests of dry eye, it is complementary with other diagnostic criteria in the context of dry eye after refractive surgery.
