After eight cases of diffuse lamellar keratitis (DLK) were noted on the same day ? July 24, 2007 ? physicians reviewed 125 eyes of 115 patients that underwent myopic LASIK between July 23 and July 26. That review included a look at the products used during the LASIK procedures.

"At [Singapore National Eye Center], there are strict protocols on the introduction of new equipment and consumables, and that includes new batches of consumables of all LASIK procedures," Wei-Han Chua, FRCSEd, FAMS, said at the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery meeting. "We were able to record every change that we did to the usual regimen. The only change that was made to protocol was the introduction of a new batch of surgical markers."
