Abstract Details

Purpose:

To evaluate the outcomes of LASIK-induced non-linear aspheric micro-monovision for the correction of presbyopia with myopia, astigmatism, hyperopia or emmetropia

Setting:

Retrospective Study/ Batıgöz Hospital

Methods:

This retrospective study included 64 patients who underwent LASIK-induced micro-monovision for the correction of presbyopia with MEL 90 excimer laser (Carl Zeiss Meditec). Flaps were created using either VisuMax (Carl Zeiss Meditec) or IFS (Abbott Medical Optics) femtosecond laser. A non-linear aspheric ablation profile was used to increase the spherical aberration in both eyes The target refraction was plano for distant eyes (dominant eye) and a slight myopia of -1,5 D for near eyes. Preoperative and postoperative uncorrected distant visual acuity (UDVA), uncorrected near visual acuity (UNVA), patient satisfaction, safety, need for retreatment, complications and follow-up time were recorded.

Results:

Among 64 patients, 18 (28.2%) patients were emmetropic, 14 (21.8%) were myopic or myopic astigmatic, and 32 (50%) were hyperopic or hyperopic astigmatic. Median age was 51 years (range: 40 to 71 years). Mean follow-up was 6.1 months (range: 1 month to 9 months). Binocularly, 98% of patients achieved UDVA 20/20; 95% achieved uncorrected near visual acuity of J2. Regarding safety, one eye lost 2 or more lines of best spectacle-corrected visual acuity. 95% of the patients were satisfied with their results at 6 months after surgery.

Conclusions:

Laser Blended Vision®(Presbyond) is a safer and effective procedure for treating patients with both myopia, hyperopia or emmetropia. Patient selection seems important for getting satisfactory results.
