Facilitation of Amblyopia Management by Laser In Situ Keratomileusis in Children with Myopic Anisometropia

LASIK is a safe and effective alternative method for correcting myopic anisometropia facilitating treatment of amblyopia, only considerd in children with spectacles or contact lens intolerance, with more improved visual acuity and binocular vision.

LASIK surgery in pediatric anisometropia

LASIK is effective, safe and predictable alternative method for correcting anisometropia in children, and the best corrected visual acuity shows a great improvement in comparing to the preoperative state by one or more lines three months after surgery.

Laser in situ keratomileusis for treated myopic anisometropic amblyopia in children.

Femtosecond Laser-Assisted LASIK in Children With Hyperopia and Anisometropic Amblyopia: 7 Years of Follow-up.

FS-LASIK was an effective method of hyperopia correction in this cohort of children with amblyopia, resulting in reduction in anisometropia, restoration of refractive balance, and functional improvement in the amblyopic eye when traditional methods failed.

Femtosecond laser corneal refractive surgery for the correction of high myopic anisometropic amblyopia in juveniles.

FS-LASIK or SMILE can be promising alternative methods to correct high myopic anisometropic amblyopia in juvenile patients who have failed with traditional approaches.

Phakic posterior chamber intraocular lens for unilateral high myopic amblyopia in Chinese pediatric patients.

This short-term results indicate that ICL implantation can be a promising alternative therapy for high myopic anisometropic amblyopia in pediatric patients who have failed with conventional treatments and not suitable to corneal refraction surgery.

Pediatric refractive surgery and its role in the treatment of amblyopia: meta-analysis of the peer-reviewed literature.

Laser refractive surgery is an effective option for improving the visual acuity in children with an amblyopic eye in association with anisometropia and its relation with age and ablation type is analyzed.



Laser in situ keratomileusis for myopic anisometropia in children.

LASIK was effective for correction of myopic anisometropia in this small group of children and reversed refractive amblyopia and provided good visual results.
