Abstract

27 consecutive cases of non freeze myopic keratomileusis (using Barraquer Krumeich Swinger Set) were performed by one surgeon on 22 patients in a retrospective study. 4 per operative complications were noticed. Visual acuity with and without correction, astigmatism before and after surgery were reviewed preoperatively, at 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months and 1 year postoperative. The preoperative myopia (mean +/- standard deviation) was -15.55 +/- 5.46 D, the average postoperative residual myopia was: at 1 week -0.43 +/- 3.58 D, at 1 month -1.18 +/- 4.15 D, at 3 month -4.44 +/- 4.80 D, at 6 month -5.43 +/- 5.51, at 1 year -6.95 +/- 4.81 D. Visual acuity without correction was always better postoperatively. The best visual acuity (with correction) was preoperatively 0.38 +/- -0.22 at 1 week postoperative 0.21 +/- 0.09, at 1 month 0.35 +/- 0.16, at 3 month 0.31 +/- 0.15, at 6 month 0.32 +/- 0.15, at 1 year 0.34 +/- 0.17. Further investigation is monitoring to assess the predictability and stability of non freeze keratomileusis.
