Abstract Details


Limits in corneal refractive surgery for Hyperopia were evaluated.


Klaus Ditzen, M.D. Bahnhofstr. 18 Weinheim, 69469 Germany


40 hyperopic eyes were operated up til +6 D between 01.07.2014 til 31.12.2015. LASIK was done with the SCHWIND Pendular Microkeratome, 10 mm flap-diameter, flap-thickness 130 µ and the Excimer Laser MEL 80 from Carl Zeiss Meditec. All eyes were controlled in 3 months, 6 months, 1 year postop. Stability, safety and predictability were analyzed.


There were a good saftey and stabilitiy. Regression starts in correction more than +4 D. Outfinding: präoperative K-value of 47 D and radius of 7.4 mm are limitations. Good stability, safety and predictability were noted.


Limitation in corneal hyperopic correction K-value of 47 D and radius of 7.4 mm. Coorections more than +4 D had regressions. Alltogether there were a good stability, safety and predictability.
