Background and Aim: Myopia is one of the most common types of refractive errors is that it is much more common in recent years .The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of Refractive surgery photorefractive keratectomy (PRK tissue saving) to correct the myopia persons above 20 years suffering from refractive errors and corneal thickness less than refractive error and operated by Technolas 217 p device is on have been.
Methods: The study included 29 individuals (15 female and 14 male) and average Myopia , astigmatism, pachymetry, keratometry and and best corrected visual acuity was measured before surgery and repeated six months after surgery were measured above mean each of the above values.
Results: postoperative astigmatism values and Myopia significantly decreased and best corrected visual acuity was 20/20 in all patients and there was no statistically significant difference between male and female. This study showed that the tissue saving surgery for people with low corneal thickness than refractive error is very convenient.
Conclusion: Photorefractivekeratectomy surgery (PRK tissue saving) using Technolas 217 p for myopic patients with refractive corneal thickness less than refractive error show good results. This type of surgery can be offered to people with the same condition.
