Abstract

One of the most important factors that influence the success of PRK might be corneal centration during treatment. We evaluated our centration rate in 49 eyes by using computer-assisted corneal topography. Only single zone treated eyes were chosen for the analysis and 91.5% of the eyes were centered within a 1 mm treatment zone while 51% were within 0.5 mm.
