Abstract

Phototherapeutic keratectomy is a useful and satisfying procedure provided its limitations are understood. It may provide visual improvement in many superficial corneal disorders. This may reduce the requirement of keratoplasty in some cases, thereby reducing the load on the eye bank. However, in some conditions, the visual improvement may not be optimal. In these conditions, the procedure may provide some visual improvement and a definitive keratoplasty may be performed at a later date.
