Abstract Details


Evaluate the effectiveness of different excimer laser keratomileusis in the performance.


Eye Clinic ḋNew VisionṠ, Minsk, Belarus. Pazniak S, Pazniak N, Kovshel N.


Achieved 15,000 operations laser keratomileusis in patients aged 18 to 32 years with myopia and hyperopia. Surgery was performed on different types of excimer laser systems: Nidek EC-5000 (Nidek, Japan), Profile (Russia), MEL 80 (ZEISS), SCWIND AMARIS.


The main criteria of evaluation of the effectiveness of excimer laser refractive goal was to achieve and receive the planned visual acuity. In the early period of observation (up to 1 month) planned refraction and visual acuity was achieved in 99.5% of patients operated on for myopia. In all of excimer lasers to the end of 3 months of follow-up, a number of patients there was a decrease resulting figures. In this regard, the most important criteria, we chose the number dokorrektion postoperatively. When performing surgery for myopia on the Nidek EC-5000 their number was 12.5%, an excimer laser Profile - 32.3%, for MEL 80 - 10.1%, on an excimer laser SCWIND AMARIS - 8,5%.


Excimer laser correction is a safe procedure when performing any type of excimer laser, but the end result is apparently influenced by the technical characteristics of a model of excimer laser installation.
