Corneal Epithelial Defect May Affect Anterior Chamber Flare

To determine the clinical practicability of in vivo dynamic corneal imaging (DCI) to assess the individual elastic properties of normal human eyes, eyes with abnormal findings, and eyes after refractive surgery. Drs. Tomas-Barberan and Fagerholm's article, 'Anterior chamber flare after photorefractive keratectomy' (J Refract Surg 1996;12:103-107) evaluated anterior chamber inflammation following photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) using the Kowa laser flare cell meter, and found a significant increase in anterior chamber flare after PRK.
