Has anyone tried this or know someone with a good result behind this.

I've read about it. I don't personally know anyone who tried it and had success.

I do personally know Dr. Trattler in Miami who wrote about his success using it. I would not hesitate to refer someone to Dr. Trattler for a second opinion (I'm probably going to get hammered for saying that!). You could try emailing Dr. Trattler. If you want his email address, send me a private message and I'll find it for you.


? Over- and undercorrections. When patients end up over- or under-corrected, I attempt to identify any epithelial irregularities, because they can make the patient appear to have a large refractive error.

If the surface is fine, I consider using Fayetteville, Ark., surgeon James McDonald?s contact-lens assisted pharmacologically induced keratosteepening. This involves using a contact lens and Acular to adjust the shape of the epithelium to counteract an overcorrection. The patient instills the Acular and then stays in the contact lens 24 hours a day for four to six weeks. I?ve used this method in a handful of small overcorrections, and have had positive results.

You can also titrate the potency and/or the duration of the postop steroids to modulate healing. If a myope is healing aggressively, the refraction can regress. If this oc?curs, you can bump up the frequency of the steroid drop to try to re?duce the healing process and produce a flatter corneal curvature. Alternatively, with an overcorrection, you can reduce or eliminate the steroids, which will allow the healing to continue. You can also use a more- or less-potent steroid, based on whether you?re dealing with an under- or overcorrection, respectively.
