90 high myopic eyes underwent ICL implantation, TICL implantation and femtosecond LASIC surgery with mean preoperative manifest spherical equivalent -18.50±5.77DS, -14.62±2.3DS and -9.94±1.9DS, respectively. Before, and 1, 3, and 6 months after, and 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 years after surgery, we assessed the safety, efficacy,stability, and adverse events of the surgery in eyes undergoing ICL/TICL implantation and femtosecond LASIC surgery. The main outcome measures include visual acuity, manifest refraction, intraocular pressure, wave-front aberration, corneal endothelial density, corneal topography and ACD.


Compared with F-LASIK group, the patients who was undergoing ICL/TICL implantation had less wave-front aberration. The safety index was 1.0 in ICL implantation group. No vision-threatening complications occurred during the observation period. No case had glaucoma or infection. The UCVA of all patients was significantly improved after surgery.


Based on the clinical results of this study, ICL/TICL implantation was good in all measures of safety, efficacy and stability for the correction of high myopia throughout a 5-year observation period. In term of wave-front aberration, the patients undergoing ICL /TICL implantation had better visual quality compared with patients with laser surgery.
