Mitomycin-C after surface ablation can prevent corneal haze

Article

Anaheim, CA-Mitomycin-C (MMC), a potent radiomimetic compound, is a useful treatment to prevent corneal haze after surface ablation in patients undergoing PRK who have greater than -7 D of myopia or an ablation depth greater than 75 ?m. It is also a good option for patients who develop late-onset haze after refractive surgery and those who have complications such as buttonholes or partial flaps after attempted LASIK, according to Randy J. Epstein, MD, who spoke during the International Society of Refractive Surgery/American Academy of Ophthalmology refractive surgery subspecialty day meeting.
