Abstract/OtherAbstract:
PURPOSE: To assess delayed epithelialization and corneal haze related to nepafenac ophthalmic suspension 0.1% (Nevanac) use after photorefractive keratectomy (PRK).
SETTING: Private practice, Beverly Hills, California, USA.
METHODS: This retrospective comparative chart review comprised 69 eyes (44 patients) that were divided into 2 treatment groups that were not statistically significantly different in age or preoperative spherical equivalent. The nepafenac group consisted of 34 eyes (22 patients) that received nepafenac 0.1%, moxifloxacin, and fluorometholone postoperatively. The non-nepafenac group included 35 eyes (22 patients) that received moxifloxacin and fluorometholone only. Patients were seen between 1 day and 5 days postoperatively for evaluation of epithelial healing and haze formation. Delayed epithelialization was defined as healing after day 5. All patients were followed for haze formation for a minimum of 3 months.
RESULTS: Statistical analysis showed no difference between the nepafenac and non-nepafenac groups in delayed epithelialization (P = .61, chi-square test). Neither group had significant corneal haze.
CONCLUSION: Nepafenac did not appear to delay corneal epithelial healing or contribute to haze formation after PRK.
