Description of a new corneal excimerlaser-surgery to correct presbyopia with LASIK binocular simultaneously.
Eye Center, Bahnhofstr. 18.
LASIK was done bilateral simultaneously with the Schwind Pendular
Microkeratom in combination with the Carl-Zeiss-Meditec Excimerlaser MEL 80. There were treated 50 eyes: 28 hyperopic and 22 myopic eyes – range from 41-54 years. The dominant eye was corrected to zero, the non-dominant eye to max. 1,5 D anisometropia. Control time one year.
The outcomes after Laser Blended Vision showed a good subjective acceptance and satisfaction. There were a good stability, safety and predictability. Postoperatively all patients needed no reading glasses.
No nightvision and contrast-sensitivity problems were noted. Binocular vision was reduced only in the first postop period.
Laser Blended Vision (Presbyond) correction for presbyopia combines the advantage of micro-monovision, increased depth of field in both eyes. The full corrected dominant eye and the intended undercorrected non-dominant eye showed satisfactory results with neural adaption and – suppression. FINANCIAL INTEREST: NONE
