Abstract

To review current concepts regarding the mechanisms of postoperative pain after photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) and review available treatment options. Many clinical studies have established the safety and efficacy of different topical and systematic therapeutic agents and techniques for the treatment of postoperative pain after PRK, especially topical nonsteroidal anti inflammatory agents and oral nonsteroidal and narcotic medications. New therapeutic agents and techniques are continuously studied, introducing new agents and comparing teh efficacy of different regimens. Postoperative pain severity varies widely between patients, and no single strategy has been proven best for acute pain management. To date, the literature supports the use of topical agents such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs) and diluted topical anesthetics in combination with oral agents such as opiates and NSAIDs for acute pain management. The use of local agents and techniques is preferred due to their less significant side effect profile. The use of systemic opiate agents is reserved for breakthrough pain.

Attention Score in Context

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 18 March 2019.
All research outputs
#17,292,294
of 25,382,440 outputs
Outputs from Current opinion in ophthalmology
#771
of 1,221 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#221,450
of 341,606 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Current opinion in ophthalmology
#11
of 18 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 25,382,440 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 21st percentile – i.e., 21% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,221 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.0. This one is in the 30th percentile – i.e., 30% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 341,606 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 26th percentile – i.e., 26% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 18 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 38th percentile – i.e., 38% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
