Abstract Details



Purpose:

To estimate risk of development retinal complications when LASIK performed at patients with myopia and various pathology of the retina.

Setting:

Ophthalmology clinic “OKOMED” Moscow, Russia

Methods:

We executed LASIK at 42 patients (84 eyes) of three subgroups: 1) the operated retinal detachment (5 eyes), 2) peripheral retinal dystrophy – “snail track”, lattice degeneration, retinal breaks (51 eyes), 3) secondary myopic macular degeneration. Prophylactic laser coagulation were performed to all patients with peripheral retinal dystrophies a month before LASIK. Average degree of myopia was - 6,5 D (range -3,5 to-10,5 D). LASIK flap were created with the MORIA M2 automatic microkeratome.

Results:

For each subgroup of patients the greatest potential possible uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA) was reached. Mean postop SE was - 1 D. Average time of vacuum action on the eye was 4,5 sec. At followed-up period up to 1,5 years after LASIK we didn"t observe any retinal complications, such as retinal detachment or progressing of macular degenerations.

Conclusions:

Existence of retinal problems of various character doesn"t exclude performance of refraction operations at patients with myopia with need of vacuum using and short-term increase of IOP.
