Effect of microkeratome suction during LASIK on ocular structures.

Excerpt: Luna et al. reported the development of PVD after LASIK with an incidence of 2% in a group of 50 patients with low myopia (1.25 to 3.5 D) and 24% in a group of 50 patients with high myopia (6 to 10 D). Considering the data from the 100 eyes, this corresponds to 13%; thus, there is not a great deal of difference between our results and the data in the literature.
