Ocular surface disturbances after laser refractive surgery Review article

Main Article Content

Joanna Wierzbowska

Abstract

Most patients undergoing laser refractive surgery demonstrate transient and mild symptoms of dry eye disease. The article presents the main mechanisms involved in dry eye disease after the most frequently performed laser vision correction methods. Differences in the occurrence of dry eye disease between flap, surface procedures and minimally invasive lenticule extraction were highlighted.
