Abstract Details


To evaluate the effectiveness and safety of SUPRACOR performed on presbyopic eyes with hyperopia or myopia bilaterally.


Eye Center East Sight Recovery, Moscow, Russia


Two groups of patients 45-66 years of age were treated by SUPRACOR method. I group - 132 eyes of 66 patients with presbyopia combined with hyperopia. II group - 10 eyes of 5 patients with presbyopia combined with myopia. Before SUPRACOR average sphere equivalent was +2.7 (I group) and -3.2 (II group), uncorrected near visual acuity (UNVA) was 0.10 (I group) and 0.23 (II group), uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA) was 0.49 (I group) and 0.05 (II group). SUPRACOR was performed bilaterally on excimer laser Technolas 217Z (Bausch@Lomb).


Long term observation period was up to 5 years in I group and up to 6 months in II group. Average UNVA and UDVA were respectively 0.89 and 0.72 (I group) and 0.95 and 0.73 (II group) first day after operation.1 month after operation UNVA and UDVA were 0.85 and 0.87 (I group) and 0.95 and 0.96 (II group) respectively. All patients were satisfied with the results of the surgery.


Based on a well known LASIK method, SUPRACOR shows effective and predictable results in cases of presbyopia combined with ametropia and can be considered to be a safe procedure when performed bilaterally. These results were stable during all period of observation. But in cases of myopia combined with presbyopia more eyes need to be studied with longer observation period.
