Corneal biomechanics have been concerned recently since it is not only found to play an important role in the wound healing process after corneal refractive surgeries, but also essential to improve the predictability and safety of refractive procedures. Corneal biomechanics and wound healing responses are linked in time and space and may also cause complications of keratectasia, haze formation, and regression. This review focuses on wound healing and biomechanics of the corneal refractive procedures. Identifying corneal wound healing from the biomechanical point of view is mandatory to improve the outcomes and reduce the complications.
