Purpose:

To evaluate the visual outcome of patients with anisometropic amblyopia after Lasik surgery .

Setting:

Department of Ophthalmology, Suez Canal University Hospitals, Ismailia, Egypt.

Methods:

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

Results:

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 .

Conclusions:

LASIK is an effective option for the correction of high mypoic or hypermetropic anisometropia .
