Abstract Details

Purpose:

To evaluate the early visual and refractive outcomes of high hyperopic LASIK using the novel femtosecond and excimer laser surgery platform.

Setting:

National Centre of Ophthalmology named after acad. Zarifa Aliyeva, Azerbaijan.

Methods:

We have evaluated the first 54 eyes in consecutive cases of high hyperopic LASIK procedure with the Alcon-Wave Light FS200 femtosecond and EX500 excimer lasers pre- and post- operatively for the following parameters: Refractive Error (RE), best Corrected Distance Visual Acuity (CDVA), Uncorrected Distance Visual Acuity (UDVA), spherical equivalent correction and refractive astigmatism. Flap thickness was 110 µm and optical zone was between 6 and 7 mm. No nomogram adjustments were made. Patients were followed for 6 months.

Results:

At the time of writing, 48 eyes had 3 month data and were included in the analysis. UDVA was 20/20 or better in 82% and 20/40 or better in 98% of eyes at 3 month after operation. Post-operative average refractive error (RE) was -0.57 diopters (D) and - 0.23 D for the 3 and 6-month period, compared to pre-operative average RE of +5.07 ± 1.55 D (range +2.50 D to +7.325). Post operative refractive astigmatism was -0.51, -0.32, for the 3-, 6 month period, compared to pre-operative average of 1.07 ± 1.51 D (range + 0.25 to+4.5).

Conclusions:

Clinical outcomes with this technique and technology appear to be very promising in high level uncorrected visual rehabilitation of high hyperopia. There was very small regression potential in the sample evaluated
