“The corneal incisions made with the dissecting, stiletto-like keratomes (Mastel Fine Triamond) were distinct from the other incisions, having a smoother stromal surface and much less disruption of stromal tissue. The dissecting incision using the stiletto-like diamond keratomes was ideal with respect to the degree of disruption of stromal tissue.”
