Figure 15 illustrates a case of a patient referred to me with epithelial ingrowth under a LASIK flap with repeated epithelial ingrowth of dense central location. I lifted the flap, removed the epithelial ingrowth, and reaffixed the flap with little induced astigmatism. After a period of 3 months to achieve stabilization, I left the cornea untouched (since it was measureable and consistent), and implanted a toric IOL to achieve an excellent outcome.
Figure 16 shows the case of a patient who had a dense central corneal scar who had undergone RK and cataract surgery. I cleared the scar using a laser Corneoplastique procedure followed by implantation of a toric IOL that resulted in emmetropia.
