ANDUJAR COBA, Patricia et al. Refractive outcomes in the transparent crystalline surgery to treat high myopia. Rev Cubana Oftalmol [online]. 2010, vol.23, n.1, pp.38-48. ISSN 0864-2176.

INTRODUCTION: A retrospective, cross-sectional and descriptive study was conducted in 212 patients (eyes) diagnosed with high myopia, who underwent phacorefractive surgery at the "Ramón Pando Ferrer" Cuban Institute of Ophthalmology Microsurgery Service, in the period from April 2001 to April 2006. OBJECTIVES: To assess the refractive results of the transparent crystalline surgery to treat high myopia by analyzing the safety and efficacy indexes of this procedure. METHODS: Summary measures like absolute and relative (%) frequency calculations and standard deviation were used to present evolutionary results and incidence of complications. Information came from pre-operative and postoperative assessments (3 months) and processed by Windows SPSS system. It was presented in tables and graphs for a better understanding. RESULTS: We found that average visual acuity without correction improved from 0,2 to 0,7 in the postoperative period, the surgical procedure safety was estimated at index of 2, with three lines of average gain in Snellen´s chart and average induced astigmatism of 0,74 dioptres CONCLUSIONS: Visual acuity with/without correction after surgery. Efficacy and safety of the surgical procedure was proven thanks to the high percentage of patients with satisfactory postoperative visual acuity without correction. We identified the posterior capsule opacity as the most common complication in aphakic patients. Regarding those patients who did not undergo intraocular lens implantation, they showed the highest number of complications.
