Abstract Details


To develop the criteria for selecting patients with ametropia of different degree for the refractive surgery


The Academician S.N. Fyodorov FSАI IRTC “Eye Microsurgery” Tambov branch, Tambov, Russia


21 patients (21eyes) with anisometropic amblyopia and spectacle/contact lens intolerance aged 8 to 15 years underwent LASIK surgery according to standard technique. High myopia – 2 operations, mixed and simple myopic astigmatism 3-7 D – 7 operations, high and average hypermetropia with astigmatism up to 7 D – 12 operations.


In 14 cases we reached the uncorrected visual acuity that was equal to the best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) prior to the surgery (up to 0.4 – 6 eyes, 0.5-0.7 – 10 eyes, up to 0.8-0.9 – 5 eyes); visual acuity improvement of 1 line was noted in 2 patients compared with BCVA, of 2 lines – in 4 patients, 3 lines – in 1 patients.


In spectacle/contact lens intolerance in high ametropia LASIK surgery is necessary being the main stage of amblyopia treatment in children.
