    Notes: Abstract We performed a study to evaluate the influence on visual function of intraocular straylight after photorefractive keratectomy (PRK). We present 4 eyes of 4 myopic individuals, who had contacted our clinic for keratorefractive surgical treatment. PRK's were performed with a Summit laser, using a 5 mm ablation zone. The straylight meter was used to measure the amount of intraocular scattered light, the physical cause of glare complaints, before and after PRK. This apparatus uses the direct compensation method to assess the amount of intraocular light scatter. The results showed a significant increase in straylight values, in the tested eyes, during the first two weeks after PRK. After the initial rise, straylight values returned to preoperative levels, except for two eyes that clearly developed a haze higher than grade two. Instead of returning to baseline levels, straylight values remained significantly higher in these eyes.
