Abstract

Purpose: The aim of this study was to analyse the clinical results of hyperopic photorefractive keratectomy treatments and to compare the results achieved with the usage of different masks. Method: 20 eyes of 16 hyperopic patients were treated, using the Aesculap-Meditec MEL60 193nm ArF excimer laser. The mean duration of follow-up was 9.9 ± 3.4 months. Statistical comparison of the results with the two masks was made using the unpaired Student t-test. Results: Preoperative mean spherical equivalent was +4.23 ± 1.18D, which changed to +0.20 ± 0.78D at one month and regressed to +1.23 ± 1.27D at the last control examination. After 6 months 60% (12 eyes) had spherical equivalent within ± 1.0D of the attempted correction. The statistical analysis showed no significant difference between the results with the two masks. Conclusion: Good preparation for the treatment is of equal importance for the results of the photorefractive keratectomy as compared to the technical circumstances.
