Abstract Details


Report short term clinical results after monocular SUPRACOR for presbyopia, in selected cases.


Private clinical practice at Barcelona, Spain.


Prospective, longitudinal case reports. Selection was based on inclusion criteria: Far best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) ? 0.4, near BCVA ?1.0, +1.0D to +3.0D mean refractive spherical equivalent MRSE, up to 1.0 D astigmatism, Km 42.0 - 45.0D, near addition (Add) ? +2.50D needed, and corneal topography compatible for LASIK procedure. Recorded variables included, monocular and binocular, uncorrected/ best corrected far and near visual acuities (UCVA, BCVA), spherical equivalent (SE), subjective refraction, addition (Add), mean topographic K (Km),astigmatism, and Q. SUPRACOR was performed as a standard LASIK surgery with the Technolas 217P Excimer Laser in the healthy eye. Data was reported as pre and postoperative mean and standard deviation (SD) using Excel database program.


Case 1: A 51-year old with a 12-year LASIK history in both eyes. Right eye (RE) far UCVA was 0.9, left eye (LE) far UCVA 0.8 (BCVA 1.0 with +1.00) and +2.00 Addition. After LE Supracor, results include: LE far UCVA 0.7; LE near UCVA 0.8, binocular far UCVA 1.0, binocular near UCVA 1.0, SE -0.625. Case 2: A 45-year old with RE amblyopia (BCVA 0.7 with +5.00-2.00x 40) and LE BCVA 1.0 (+2.50 -1.00x 140). After LE Supracor postoperative results were: far UCVA 0.9; near UCVA 1.0, binocular far UCVA 0.9; binocular near UCVA 1.0,SE -0.375. Case 3: A 59-year old with LE amblyopia (far BCVA 0.4 with +3.50 -4.0x25) and RE far BCVA 1.0 (with +1.00-0.25 x 5); near BCVA 1.0 for both eyes (+2.50 Add). After RE Supracor, postop results include: RE far UCVA 1.0, RE near UCVA 0.8, RE SE neutral, binocular far UCVA 1.0; binocular near UCVA 0.8. Case 4. A 49-year old with RE amblyopia (far BCVA 0.6 with +4.75-2.50 x 165; LE BCVA 1.0 (+2.25-0.50x 90) and near BCVA was 1.0 with Add +1.50 for both eyes. LE Supracor postop results were: LE far UCVA 1.0; near UCVA 1.0, SE -0.50.


Supracor for presbyopia improves near UCVA in the dominant eye, thus reducing dependence from reading glasses. FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE?: No
