Abstract Details


To compare the results in uncorrected visual acuity after one year follow up of patients who underwent LASIK surgery or ICL implantation Possibility of amblyopia treatment


Sistina Ophthalmology and Klinika Svjetlost


We operated 60 eye with LASIK, 8 eyes amblyopic and 21 eyes with ICL implantation, 4 eyes amblyopic (in range of 0.1-0.8) Follow up: 1st month,3rd month, 6th month, 1st year INCLUSION CRITERIA Unchanged refraction for at least one year AC depth > 3,0 mm Endotelial cell count > 2200 cells/mm² Scotopic pupil <7.5mm Anterior chamber angle > grade II No intraocular disease (diabetes without retinopathy and well controled glaucoma are relative contraindications, any history of uveitis is absolute contraindication)


Both LASIK and ICL implantation showed significant improvement of UCVA compared with preoperative BCVA. We conclude significant improvement in UCBA at patients who underwent ICL implantation .


ICL implantation showed more predictible and more stabile postoperative refraction in the follow up period of 1 year. ICL should be considerate in treatment of adult ambliopic patients with amblyopia ( full refractive correction and myopic defocusing)
