To evaluate one-year results of aberration-optimized presbyopic LASIK in hyperopic patients.

This is a prospective single-center, single-surgeon study. Bilateral LASIK using a multifocal corneal ablation profile was performed on hyperopic presbyopic patients aged between 48 -65 years old, with a manifest refraction spherical equivalent (MRSE) of +0.75 to +5.0 diopters (D) and a maximum 0.75 D difference between the MRSE and cycloplegic refraction. All patients were followed for a minimum of 1 year postoperatively. The main outcome measures were safety, efficacy in terms of uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA), uncorrected intermediate visual acuity (UIVA) and uncorrected reading ability, predictability, stability, patient satisfaction, and functioning at 12 months.

One-year results to follow. Interim 6 months results show no patients lost any lines of BCVA, with 100% of patients having UDVA >0.63, 50% of patients with UDVA > 1.0, 86% of patients with near visual acuity of >0.63, and an 86% overall patient satisfaction rate.

This multifocal presyopic LASIK procedure has potential to provide good unaided near and distance vision in hyperopic presbyopic patients, with good safety and efficacy to date. One year results to follow.
