2 21/09/04www.drmathys.be ESCRS 2004 PARIS Zyoptix (B&L) for PRK Procedures for Z – Lasik Orbscan and Aberrometry-guided ablation Tissue saving, wide optical zone, reduce treatment-induced aberrations Adapted for PRK – using the same preop measurements

3 21/09/04www.drmathys.be ESCRS 2004 PARIS Why Zyoptix ? Thin cornea: < 520 µ Large pupil Tissue saving Aberrations preop > 0.30µ RMS PSF

4 21/09/04www.drmathys.be ESCRS 2004 PARIS Technique Topography and aberrometry by the same well-trained technician Alignment under the laser, head position: crucial PRK: std technique Postop treatment: std

5 21/09/04www.drmathys.be ESCRS 2004 PARIS Results

6 21/09/04www.drmathys.be ESCRS 2004 PARIS Aberrations Measurements of all aberrations preoperatively Same postop: 1M, 3M, 6M, 12M Time development view Normal band view Orbscan

7 21/09/04www.drmathys.be ESCRS 2004 PARIS Example 1: thin corneas

8 21/09/04www.drmathys.be ESCRS 2004 PARIS Example 1: thin corneas

9 21/09/04www.drmathys.be ESCRS 2004 PARIS Example 2: large pupil

10 21/09/04www.drmathys.be ESCRS 2004 PARIS Example 2: large pupil

11 21/09/04www.drmathys.be ESCRS 2004 PARIS Example 3: limited induced aberrations

12 21/09/04www.drmathys.be ESCRS 2004 PARIS Contrast sensitivity

13 21/09/04www.drmathys.be ESCRS 2004 PARIS RMS changes

14 21/09/04www.drmathys.be ESCRS 2004 PARIS Discussion If thin cornea, PRK more suitable However, higher correction may induce more haze, delayed visual recovery, regression, etc… Our experience: exactly the same But Z-PRK: less haze, better astigmatic correction, wider optical zone, no contrast loss

15 21/09/04www.drmathys.be ESCRS 2004 PARIS Conclusion Very interesting technique Need a correction factor for the aberrometer measurements (ours: 90%) Alignment crucial Cyclotorsion Corneal marking for astigmatism

16 21/09/04www.drmathys.be ESCRS 2004 PARIS No higher RMS postop for high correction No higher RMS postop for large OZ Seems to reduce RMS for OZ 6 – 6.5 Safe and effective: no loss of VA
