Abstract Details


The first clinical experience with a novel ultraviolet laser for flap creation for lasik surgery


Gemini Eye Clinic, Prague


Ultraviolet spectrum laser (Sirama, Schwind) was used for flap cutting for lasik surgery on 10 myopic eyes of 5 patients with mean age 32 years. Intended flap thicknes was 120 mikrometers. Myopia was corrected by excimer laser (Amaris 1000, Schwind).


It was possible to dock the patient in all cases. The flap was successfully created in all cases. The mean preoperative refraction -4,25D ±1,9D (-2,5; -7,25) was decreased to -0.25D ±0.2D (+0.25; -1.25) at 1 month after surgery. Achieved flap thickness was 124 ±7 micrometers. Video of the surgery with flap lifting will be displayed.


The first clinical experience with the new ultraviolet spectrum picosecond laser is promising. The data on more patients will be presented in the near future. FINANCIAL INTEREST: NONE
