PURPOSE : To find out the effect of LASIK on visual acuity, spherical equivalent and stereopsis in anisohypermetropic amblyopia in adults.METHODS : Prospective interventional study was done on 11 anisohypermetropic amblyopes in which conventional therapy had failed. These patients underwent LASIK surgery and the results were analysed at 3 month of follow up.RESULTS : Mean age of the patients was 22.91 4.59 ( Range 19 32 years ). The best corrected visual acuity improved from a mean of 0.32 0.13 preoperative to 0.46 0.20 postoperative ( p value < 0.05 ). The SE decreased from a mean of +3.53 0.97 to +1.19 0.49 ( p value < 0.05 ), there was no significant change in stereopsis.CONCLUSION : LASIK is a safe and better alternative for refractive correction in cases of adults anisohypermetropic amblyopia.
