The top photo was taken in 2010. Note the blood vessels growing along the RK incision. In addition, if you look carefully you will notice a few milky-white deposits near the blood vessels close to the pupil. This was the first sign of epithelial cells ( the outer cellular layer of the cornea) getting underneath the LASIK flap. The lower photo was taken in 2013. Note how the milky white area has grown dramatically. The R-K surgery was done in 1988 and the LASIK surgery was done in 1999. At the present time this patient is having a consultation at a major university eye center for a corneal transplant.
