Methods:

Methods and materials: The numbers of patients was 5, 3 males and 2 females. Age varied from 24-34 years old. Hyperopia varied from �.00- �.0 D. Visus with correction was 5/10 or more in all patients. Examinations included UCVA, BCVA, cycloplegic refraction, slit lamp biomicroscopy, tonometry, B-scan, biometry were done to all patients.

Results:

Rezultatet: All patients underwent phacoemulsification PCIOL(high plus power). Patients were examined first day post-op 1 week, 2, 4 weeks, 2 months and 6 months after the surgery. The post op refraction was not more than 0.75 D.
