Can a doctor viewing one's cornea see how much of the cornea was treated?
Do they see this by viewing an Orbscan?
Are both methods able to tell them 6mm was treated and treated equally?

There is seldom a clear line separating treated from non-treated areas. A clear line would not be wanted because it could cause light refraction problems.
