Abstract
In this case series, five patients (10 eyes) underwent laser in siter keratomileusis (LASIK) for the correction of moderate myopia and astigmatism with the Schwind Carriazo Pendular microkeratome 90 mum head. Flap (superior hinged) thickness measured intraoperatively was assessed less than 70 mum in all eyes. On first month's postoperative examination, subepithelial mild corneal haze with consequent myopic regression was found in all patients. A significant improvement of haze formation and residual refractive error were observed during the following postoperative months. In conclusion, post-LASIK subepithelial corneal haze after thin flap creation is a temporarily potential complication that could affect patient's refractive error during the first postoperative month.
