Refractive Surgery and Cornea: The Never-Ending Spiral of Technology

Excerpt:

"Disadvantages of using a femtosecond laser are greater early postoperative corneal inflammation, including flap margin diffuse lamellar keratitis and central keratitis noted by many surgeons, including the authors. This increase in inflammation is likely due to the rupture of far greater numbers of epithelial cells at the flap margin with a femtosecond laser than with the microkeratome, resulting in the release of high levels of proinflammatory cytokines."
