Abstract Details


To evaluate vision acuity speed recovery for patients underwent conventional


Prof. Erika N. Eskina, MD, Laser Surgery Clinic SPHERE, Moscow, Russia


There were 22 patients (44 eyes) (29±5 years, range 21 to 44) with SEQ -4.85D±2,03D (range -1,25D to -8,5D) VisuMax femtosecond laser system (CZM) with the following parameters: flap thickness 110-120 mkm, RST more than 300 mkm. Planned OZ was in average 6,28±0,6 mm (range from 5,4 to 7,2 mm), lens thickness 94± 13 mkm (range from 65 to 116 mkm). Patients were analysed at 1, 7 days and 1, 3 - months postop. Clinical outcomes were evaluated in terms of clinical refraction, BCVA, UCVA and safety.


The UCVA before the operation was 0,075±0,06, BCVA 0,98±0,06. Uncorrected vision recovery speed was estimated at 1, 7 days and 1, 3 -months postop 0,78±0,2, 0,86±0,13, 0,92±0,1 and reached 0,98±0,1 at 3 months and remained stable during further observation. Average BCVA at 3 months was the same like before the operation. There were 4 eyes (9,1%) lost 1 line from BCVA, 3 eyes (6,8%) gained 1 or more lines BCVA. 33 eyes (75%) reached target refraction, 38 eyes (86,3%) were within 0,25 D from target refraction, 43 eye (97,7%) – within 0,5 D from target.


ReLex Smile is a safe and predictable method in correction myopia in a range from low to high degree. Vision recovery speed was high enough to provide a driving ability within 1 day after surgery and reached BCVA level at 1-3 months after surgery. Described data could help in explaining of vision recovery speed to the patients.
