Abstract. Purpose:To report the outcome within 6 months after LASIK using VisuMax® for myopia. Cases and Method:This retrospective study was made on 109 eyes of 55 cases that received LASIK during the past 4 years by multiple surgeons in one institution. The age averaged 33.3±9.0 years. Refraction averaged −5.08±2.37 diopters. Cases were evaluated regarding complications, refraction and unaided visual acuity before and after surgery. Visual acuity was evaluated as logMAR. Results:As major intraoperative complications, suction loss occurred in 2 eyes and hemorrhage from side-cut in 2 eyes. Unaided visual acuity on the next day after surgery averaged −0.0843. Refraction 6 months after surgery was 0.185 diopters over the target value. A significant difference was present in refraction one month after surgery between eyes with myopia less than −5.0 diopters and those with stronger myopia. No difference was present between the two groups regarding refraction 6 months after surgery. Conclusion:LASIK using VisuMax® was free of serious complications and resulted in refraction and unaided visual acuity within predicted value 6 months after surgery.
