Abstract Details


To evaluate and report the visual, refractive and aberrometric outcomes of LASIK for the correction of low to moderate hyperopia in a pilot group using a commercially available solid-state laser


Department of Ophthalmology (Oftalmar). Medimar International Hospital, Alicante, Spain


Prospective pilot study including 11 consecutive eyes with low to moderate hyperopia of 6 patients undergoing LASIK surgery using the Pulzar Z1 solid-state laser (CustomVis Laser Pty Ltd, currently CV Laser). Visual, refractive and aberrometric changes were evaluated. Potential complications were evaluated as well. Mean follow-up time was 6 months.


A significant improvement in LogMAR uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA) was observed postoperatively (p=0.01). No significant change was detected in LogMAR corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA) (p=0.21). Postoperative LogMAR UDVA was 0.1 (about 20/25) or better in 10 eyes (90.9%). Mean overall efficacy and safety indices were 1.03 and 1.12. Postoperatively, no losses of lines of CDVA were observed. Postoperative spherical equivalent was within ±1.00 D in 10 eyes (90.9%). Regarding aberrations, no statistically significant changes were found in higher order and primary coma root mean square postoperatively (p?0.21), with only minimal but statistically significant negativization of primary spherical aberration (p=0.02) was observed. No severe complications were observed.


LASIK surgery using the solid-state laser technology seems to be a useful procedure for the correction of low to moderate hyperopia, with minimal induction of higher order aberrations FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE?: No
