To evaluate the results in patients with hypermetropia having undergonephotoreactive keratectomy (PRK).Group and Methods: The authors present a retrospective analysis of the results in40 eyes operated on PRK in the period of September 1997 to November 2002 at theEye Clinic of the Faculty Hospital in Hradec Králové. The mean preoperationspherical refraction was 2.90 ± 0.98 dioptry (D), the mean astigmatism being -0.82± 0.78 D, visual uncorrected visual acuity (NZO) 0.37 ± 0.37, the mean correctedvisual acuity (KZO) 1.28 ± 0.27).Results: One year after the operation on 31 eyes, the resulting mean sphericalrefraction was 0.76 ± 1.10 D, the mean astigmatism being -1.01 ± 0.80 D, NZO 0.77± 0.18, KZO 0.99 ± 0.21, NZO 6/12 and better was detected in 94% of surgicallytreated eyes.Conclusion: The PRK method has been found sufficiently effective for the correctionof low and medium hypermetropia
