To estimate risk of development retinal complications when LASIK performed at patients with myopia and various pathology of the retina.
Ophthalmology clinic OKOMED Moscow, Russia
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.
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.
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.
