Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) with mitomycin-C (MMC) was performed in 2 patients with visually significant, complicated laser in situ keratomileusis flap striae. These striae had been resistant to multiple treatments, including stretching, suturing, and PRK. The visual symptoms in both patients resolved after PRK with MMC, and both patients were stable 1 year later. Wavefront-guided PRK with MMC may be a viable treatment for patients who have complicated flap striae resistant to standard measures.
