Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This article reports the results of photorefractive keratectomy in nine patients between 10 and 15 years of age who were treated for the following refractive errors: unilateral myopia, post intraocular lens myopia, and unequal hypermetropia with amblyopia. Visual acuity improved and spectacle correction decreased in all patients. There was significant visual improvement with pleoptic treatment in one amblyopic hypermetropic patient.
