Summary:

The purpose of study is to compare an effectiveness of different refractive laser surgery methods. Material and methods. 72 LASIK patients (141 eyes) and 21 TransPRK patients (39 eyes) were analyzed. Among them there were 42 women and 50 men. The age of patients at the operation moment was from 18 to 46 years. Patients were divided into 3 groups, according to myopia rate. The research method is descriptive statistics. Results. A differentiated approach to the choice of surgery gives the maximum possible and stable functional result. Confocal corneal microscopy data show a decrease in the corneal epithelium of the number of cells with large nuclei (markers of hypoxia) in operated patients, in contrast to patients using contact lenses. This confirms the advantage of laser correction in comparison with contact correction of myopia. Conclusion. High and stable recuperated vision sharpness at all patients attests eximer-laser correction efficiency and safety under any myopia rates.
