To present the results of hyperopic LASIK with 6 month follow up of 992 consecutive eyes undergoing hyperopic femtosecond laser assisted LASIK
: Ultralase Optimax Group Eye Surgery Clinics, United Kingdom
992 eyes of 496 patients underwent femtosecond laser assisted LASIK. We present uncorrected visual acuities (UCVA), best corrected visual acuities (BCVA), defocus, stability and safety data. This was a multi surgeon and multi centre study. Sphere of up to+5.25 and cylinder of up to -5.00 was treated. Follow up duration was for a minimum of 6 months.
90% of patients were within +/-0.5D of 100% were within +/1.00D of emmetropia respectively. 88% had a defocus of <0.5D and 99% had a defocus of <1.00D. 82% of patients achieved 20/20 or better and 100% of patients were 20/40 or better. 22% of patients gained 1 line of vision and 1% gained 2 lines of BCVA respectively. There was no reported incidence of loss of 2 lines or more of BCVA.
Hyperopic LASIK with the Schwind Amaris 750s is both safe and effective. Longer rem follow up data is required to determine stability. FINANCIAL INTEREST: NONE
