Abstract Details


To evaluate the the efficacy, safety and predictability of laser epithelial keratomileusis (LASEK) for the correction of hyperopia using the SCHWIND AMARIS platform


Ophthalmology Department, Bina Eye Hospital, Tehran,Iran.


This retrospective single-surgeon study included 66 eyes of 33 patients with hyperopia who underwent LASEK with mitomycin C (MMC). The mean age of patient was 35.42±1.12 years (range 18 to 56 years).In each patient LASEK was performed using SCHWIND AMARIS excimer laser. Postoperatively clinical outcomes were evaluated in terms of predictability, safety , efficacy ,subjective and objective refractions, uncorrected visual acuity(UCVA), best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and adverse events


The mean baseline refraction was 3.35±1.59 diopters (D) (range 0.25 to 7 D). The mean preoperative and postoperative spherical equivalent (SE) were 2.34 ± 1.76(range -1.25 to 7 D) and 0.30±0.84 (range -0.2 to 0.8 D) respectively (p=0.001). At one year, the mean hyperopia was 0.63±0.84 D (range -1.75 to 2.76 D). Likewise, the mean astigmatism was 0.68±0.43 D (from 0 to 2 D) with 61 (78.2%) and 31 (39.7%) eyes within ±1 and ±0.50 D respectively. The safety index and efficay index were 1.08 and 1.6 respectively.


Laser-assisted subepithelial keratectomy using SCHWIND AMARIS with MMC yields good visual and refractive results for hyperopia .There were no serious complications.
