Summary: Refractive surgery is well established among adults, but its use in children remains controversial, and can evoke strong opposition. This paper presents the general review of paediatric refractive surgical procedures, which may play a role in treating carefully selected children with anisometropic amblyopia where traditional therapy has failed. The authors present also their own results of 2 cases of LASIK in children with amblyopic unilateral mixed astigmatism
Keywords: paediatric refractive surgery, LASIK, PRK, relaxing incisional keratotomy, phakic intraocular lens, anisometropia, amblyopia.
