To evaluate the visual outcome of patients with anisometropic amblyopia after Lasik surgery .
Department of Ophthalmology, Suez Canal University Hospitals, Ismailia, Egypt.
Laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) was performed in 24 anisometropic amblyopic eyes of 24 patients. All eyes were amblyopic and received the standard amblyopia treatment (occlusion and/or optical penalization). The mean age of the patients was 21.62 ±9.55 SD years, ranging from (6 42) years. The Mean myopic error ± SD was -5.7 ±2.25 range from (-11.5: -3.25) and the mean hypermetropic ± SD was +3.5 ± 0.95
The preoperative Mean uncorrected visual acuity Mean ±SD was 0.11 ±0.06 and became 0.56 ±0.18 ;while the preoperative mean best corrected visual acuity was 0.39ḟ0.13 and became 0.57 ±0.17 six monthes postoperatively . Uncorrected VA of all patients improved significantly about three or more lines in snellens" chart. BCVA of about 79 % of the patients improved by one or more lines in snellens" chart .
LASIK is an effective option for the correction of high mypoic or hypermetropic anisometropia .
