Abstract Details


A Comparison between alcohol and non-alcohol application to remove cornea epiteliuam layer and study of the effect of it on increasing visual improvement in patients.


Moshref hospital


There are 2 groups in this study as follows: Group A includes 60 patients with alcohol and Group B includes 60 patients without alcohol to remove cornea epitelium layer during lasek surgery. The result of all 120 patients evaluation has been shown in the following table:


We can conclude that non-alcohol application hasn’t much role in improvement process. However , cornea haziness has been reported 2 cases in our study in group A , but there hasn’t reported it in group B.


There is a trivial difference between alcohol and non-alcohol application in improvement process. Also ,it is recommanded non-alcohol in termsof cornea haziness. However , alcohol application due to increasing surgery process and other factors will be the better choice , according to most ophtalmologists.
