To research shape, thickness and biomechanical properties of the cornea after INTRACOR.
S.N. Fyodorov Eye Microsurgery Complex, Novosibirsk Branch
Clinical trial is based on results of measurement cornea in 10 patients (11 eyes) after operation. The operation was performed with the femtosecond laser FEMTEC (Technolas-Perfect Vision). Pre- and postoperative complete ophthalmic examination including uncorrected and best spectacle corrected visual acuity, corneal topography Zyoptix (Bausch&Lomb), OCT (Optovue) was done.
After INTRACOR the power of the center cornea (3,0 mm) has increased up to 2,0 ± 0,25 D. We didn"t observe considerable changes of biomechanical properties of a cornea after operation. One day, one week, one and three months postoperatively the exams revealed a stable uncorrected near visual acuity with a mean gain of 5 lines of near visual acuity and no change in distance visual acuity.
The new operation (INTRACOR) treatment of presbyopia shows very promising results in the correction of presbyopia.
