Abstract Details


To evaluate the accuracy of two new post LASIK/PRK regression formulas called BMR (myopic formula) and BHR (hypermetropic formula) and comparing them to other formulas such as BESSt, Shammas PL Myopia and Haigis L.


Moorfields Eye Hospital Dubai


We retrospectively compared the mean errors (ME) and median absolute errors (MAE) of each formula in a group of 136 consecutive eyes undergoing phacoemulsification following LASIK/PRK. Eyes were grouped according to their pre-refractive surgery refractive error (102 myopia; 34 hypermetropia).


In the Myopic group the ME was: BMR (0.07± 0.99 D), BESSt 2 Myopia (0.54± 1.23 D), BESSt 1 (-0.05± 1.30 D), Shammas PL Myopia, (-1.05± 1.12 D), Haigis L (-0.89± 1.23 D). The MAE was: BMR (0.69± 0.73 D), BESSt 2 Myopia (0.98± 0.91 D), BESSt 1 (1.07± 0.73 D), Shammas PL Myopia, (1.32± 0.79 D), Haigis L (1.23± 0.89 D). In the Hypermetropic group the ME was: BHR (0.28± 0.81 D), BESSt 2 Hyperopia (0.16± 1.08 D), BESSt 1 (-0.72± 0.99 D), Shammas PL Hyperopia (-0.09± 1.14 D). The MAE was: BHR (0.70± 0.48 D), BESSt 2 Hyperopia (0.83± 0.69 D), BESSt 1 (1.06± 0.60 D), Shammas PL Hyperopia, (0.83± 0.76 D).


In the Myopic group, BMR was statistically significantly more accurate than BESSt 1 (p<0.001) and BESSt 2 Myopia (p:0.033), Shammas PL-Myopia (p<0.001) and Haigis L (p<0.001) and had the lowest SD in the group (0.99 D). 30% more eyes were <0.50 D from the target compared to BESSt 1 and 2. In the Hypermetropic group, BHR was statistically significantly more accurate than BESSt 1 (p<0.001) and Shammas PL-Hyperopia (p:0.03) and was as accurate as BESSt 2 (p>0.05). BHR has the lowest SD in the group (0.81 D). 13% more eyes were <0.50 D from the target compared to BESSt 2, and 50% more compared to BESSt 1.
