    Demarcation Line in the Human Cornea After Surface Ablation Observed by Optical Coherence Tomography and Confocal Microscopy

    Purpose: To investigate the long-term changes in anterior corneal structure after surface ablation. Methods: In this retrospective study, patients who received surface ablation including laser-assisted subepithelial keratomileusis (LASEK) and epipolis laser in situ keratomileusis at the Department of Ophthalmology of Fudan University Eye and Ear, Nose and Throat (EENT) Hospital (Shanghai, People's Republic of China) were telephoned. Patients were asked to follow-up at the refractive center. Changes in the anterior cornea (from the epithelium to the anterior stroma) were examined by optical coherence tomography (OCT) and in vivo confocal microscopy. Results: Thirty-four eyes of 18 patients (10 years or ...
